Fijian international Leone Nakarawa re-joined Glasgow Warriors in January 2020 in a deal until the end of the season. He extended that deal by another year until 2021.

The second-row, who can also play in the back-row, originally joined Glasgow in 2013 from the Fiji Barbarians rugby club.

He became a big favourite with the Scotstoun support and helped Warriors to their 2015 PRO12 win.

Nakarawa's form caught the attention of Racing 92 and the French club bought out his Glasgow contract to take him to Paris.

He was named European Player of the Year at the end of his second season with the Parisian club, scoring 23 tries in 86 games over his time in France.

Nakarawa has also made a significant impression on the international stage; the man from Tavua has represented his country at three Rugby World Cups, as well as being named in the official Team of the Tournament at England 2015.

He was also part of the Fiji 7s squad that claimed rugby 7s gold at Rio 2016, earning what was Fiji's first-ever Olympic medal.
