Harlequins’ Fijian lock Tevita Cavubati signs new contract

Tevita Cavubati

Powerful Fijian lock Tevita Cavubati has extended his contract at Harlequins beyond the current season.

The second row, capped 30 times by Fiji, has committed to the Premiership club for the 2020-21 season.

Cavubati moves to Twickenham Stoop last summer after previous spells with Worcester Warriors and Newcastle Falcons. Back Quins to finish the Premiership season strongly and utilise the odds on offer at Bet 365 with these free bets available.

And after making 15 appearances for Harlequins thus far, Cavubati expressed his content at playing for a club whose colours were a usual sight in his home city of Suva.

“Since joining the club, I’ve had the pleasure of wear the jersey fifteen times so far and have loved every minute of it,” Cavubati said.

“I grew up in the capital of Fiji called Suva and Fiji has the most passionate rugby fans you will ever meet. You would see Harlequins jerseys constantly whilst growing up and people would talk about how they played.

“While I obviously hope to bring a level of physicality to the game as a second row, Quins is a club that plays attractive rugby, and I really value that. I’m delighted to be able to extend my time here.”

Harlequins head of rugby Paul Gustard outlined his intent to keep the team’s engine room a fearsomely physical unit.

“We are delighted Tex has agreed to extend his time at the club,” Gustard said. “He’s been a physically dominant presence whenever he’s pulled on the Quarters and has consistently secured Quins the type of gain line success that is so crucial in modern rugby – as both a destructive tackler and carrier.”
