Wasps centre to join Bristol for next season

Wasps and Samoa international centre Alapati Leiua has joined Bristol Rugby.

Wasps and Samoa international centre Alapati Leiua has joined Bristol Rugby. The deal will start from next season.

The 28-year-old has scored two tries in 11 Test appearances for Samoa.

Leiua has made 30 appearances for the English club since joining them from Super Rugby side Hurricanes in April 2014.

“He’s a robust midfielder who can play in a number of positions in the backline,” Bristol head coach Mark Tainton told the club website.

“Alapati was a standout performer for the Hurricanes in Super Rugby and made a similar impact in his first season with Wasps – he will be a fantastic addition to the Bristol Rugby squad.”
