London Irish have signed Fijian prop Jerry Yanuyanutawa ahead of the new season.

The 27-year-old has played for Super Rugby side ACT Brumbies since 2010 and made the first of three international appearances this summer.

"I am looking forward to joining London Irish and challenging with the other props for a starting berth," he said.

"The Aviva Premiership looks a very competitive competition which I am excited to be a part of."
