Fainga'anuku joins Glasgow

Tonga international loosehead prop Ofa Fainga'anuku has joined Glasgow Warriors on a short-term deal.

Fainga'anuku, who has represented Super Rugby franchise the Waratahs, is set to move to Scotstoun until January as cover for Jon Welsh (shoulder) and Ed Kalman (back).

Head coach Gregor Townsend told Glasgow's official website: "We're delighted to be able to bring on board a man with Test experience to give more depth to an area where we have two long-term injuries."

Glasgow also confirmed Fiji scrum-half Niko Matawalu will arrive imminently after obtaining a visa, while South African number eight Josh Strauss, signed last Tuesday, will also join up with the squad shortly.
