Worcester capture Samoa Test forward

Worcester have completed the signing of versatile Samoa forward Chris Vui until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old, who can play in the second row or back row, joins up with his new Sixways teammates immediately.
Vui has had a whirlwind few months, having captained New Zealand side North Harbour to the Mitre 10 Championship title in October, before earning his first cap for Samoa against France last month.
Vui also enjoyed a stint at Auckland Blues featuring in the 2015 Super Rugby campaign, while he represented New Zealand U20s in the 2013 World Rugby Championship.
Head Coach Carl Hogg said: “Chris is a big, powerful and adaptable forward who will certainly add some strength to our pack.
“At just 23, he is an experienced leader having led North Harbour to the top flight and we are excited to see what he has to offer.”
Vui added: “Worcester have a great vision in place and the facilities and resources available at the Club are outstanding.
“I’m excited about the prospect of playing Premiership Rugby and hopefully I can boost the squad and help push us up the table.”
