Glasgow Warriors have today confirmed the signing of Aki Seiuli on a two-year deal, subject to visa and medical.
A product of Timaru Boys High School, Seiuli made his debut for the Dunedin-based franchise in May 2016 and helped his side reach the Super Rugby semi-finals.
He was part of the Highlanders side which beat the British and Irish Lions in 2017, alongside current Warrior Halanukonuka.
Since 2012, the New Zealander has represented Otago 60 times in the Mitre 10 Cup and NPC.
“I'm really looking forward to moving to Glasgow," he said.
"It's going to be a new challenge for me and I'm excited about the opportunity to play in Europe.
"The coaching team's reputation speaks for itself - Dave is highly regarded and I can't wait to work with him. I also know Siua from our time at the Highlanders, so I’m sure he’ll help me settle in..."
The 26-year-old has made 38 appearances for the Highlanders in Super Rugby, and will link up with former team-mate Siua Halanukonuka at Scotstoun this year.
