More Fijians on their way to Scotland as Mesu Dolokoto signs for Glasgow Warriors

Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie

Hooker Mesu Dolokoto has become the latest Fijian to sign for a Scottish PRO14 club.

The 24-year-old has inked a two-year contract to join Glasgow Warriors from Fijian Drua, the current champions of the National Rugby Championship in Australia.

Dolokoto has won nine caps for his country, and has an opportunity to win more, having been called up to Fiji’s World Cup training squad last month.

The newest addition to the Glasgow Warriors squad came off the bench in the autumn Test against Scotland at Murrayfield in November, and previously captained Fiji A against Uruguay, Argentina and Italy last summer.

On signing with the Warriors, Mesu Dolokoto said: “I’m very happy to be joining Glasgow Warriors and I’m looking forward to playing in two of the best rugby competitions in the world.

“The opportunity to learn from such an experienced coaching team and play in such a successful team is very exciting for me.

“The club has a strong Fijian history and I hope I can be a big part of it going forward.”

Glasgow Warriors Assistant Coach, John Dalziel, added: “Mesu is an exciting talent who will bring even more international experience to our front-row.

“He isn’t your traditional front-row forward, he likes to bring a bit of Fijian flair to his game, but he can also do the basics very well and we’re excited to work with him when he shows up following international duty.”

The arrival of Dolokoto at Scotstoun follows a flurry of signings by Edinburgh who announced the signing of Mesulame Kunavula on Tuesday.
