David Lemi joins Glasgow

David Lemi has joined Glasgow
Glasgow Warriors have added further international class to their back division with the signing of Samoa Rugby World Cup winger David Lemi.

He today put pen to paper on a contract that will see him tied to the Warriors until at least the end of the current season.

The former Bristol and Wasps wing is due to land in Glasgow on Tuesday. Having lived in Britain since 2005, he is classed as a UK resident and will not be considered a “non-European” player for RaboDirect PRO12 games. Under tournament rules, a maximum of two non-European players are permitted in a team’s match-day squad.

David told “I’m delighted to have signed for Glasgow Warriors and to have the chance to help the team enjoy a successful season.

“One look at the squad list tells you that this is a club with a lot of talented players, and I’m confident that I can bring the benefit of my own experience to bear and play a part in the side continuing to win.

“Having spoken to Sean Lineen, I’ve already got a got insight into the passion and commitment that I’ll find at the club. They’ve been doing well of late, and I can’t wait to do my bit to make sure that run continues.”

Sean Lineen said: “He’s hungry, he handles pressure well and he’s a proven try scorer. It looks like we’re going to be without one of our main try-providers, DTH, for a significant amount of time, and so it’s fantastic to have brought on board someone like David who we know will provide the same sort of threat.”

Great news - exactly the type of signing I'd like us to make. He was very good in the RWC, always a nuisance to defences at Wasps and I'm surprised he was out of contract.

Is he eligible for the Heiny?
