Scott Fuglistaller: The flanker has agreed to move to the Rebels
Melbourne Rebels have added two New Zealanders to their ranks for next season with the signings of Scott Fuglistaller and Jason Woodward.
Fuglistaller, a 25-year-old openside flanker, plays for Wellington in the ITM Cup but has failed to break in to the Hurricanes squad - with Serge Lilo, Karl Lowe and Jack Lam blocking his path.
And Fuglistaller will be joined at the Rebels by the 22-year-old Woodward, who will increase competition across the back three.
Fuglistaller, who has played Super Rugby for the Highlanders, and Woodward have both signed two-year deals after failing to secure deals with any of the New Zealand franchises.
