Leicester Tigers sign ex-Fiji winger Nadolo from Montpellier


Leicester Tigers announced the signing of former Fiji international Nemani Nadolo from Top 14 side Montpellier on Monday.

Nadolo will join the Gallagher Premiership club ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The winger scored 222 points in 29 Test appearances for Fiji since his international debut in 2010.

“Tigers are everything I’m looking for in a club,” Nadolo said in a statement. “Family first and the vision they have moving forward is something I wanted to be a part of.”

Before joining Montpellier in 2016, Nadolo previously had spells at the Crusaders in New Zealand, Green Rockets in Japan, Exeter Chiefs in England, Bourgoin-Jallieu in France and the NSW Waratahs in Australia.

“It’s certainly one to get excited about, no matter who you are,” Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy said.

“He’s a star of the international game and a player that crowds all over the world have been able to enjoy see play.

“Now, the Tigers faithful get that chance and the playing squad, as well as coaching staff, get the opportunity to work alongside and with Nemani from next season.”

The Tigers also secured contract extensions for captain Tom Youngs and his brother, England scrum-half Ben.

“I’ve always wanted to remain here and any suggestion I didn’t or don’t give my everything for Leicester is way off the mark,” Ben Youngs said.
