Able to play both sides of the scrum, Junior earlier this year made his 1st grade debut for the Pirates against Randwick.

Speaking on his move Junior said “I am over the moon to be given the opportunity. After having a couple of injuries this year i really wanted to play some more rugby and now to be given the chance at pro rugby at such a great club is awesome.”

We wish Junior all the best for his new adventure abroad and are sure this is just the beginning to a great career.

Congratulations to Chris Seuteni who has signed with SC Albi in the ProD2 for the next two years.

Commenting on signing with Albi, Chris said “I’m really happy to get a the opportunity to join a great club on the rise and now i’m just trying to stay focused and have a big off season so i can hit the ground running come day one with my new club.

I’ve only heard good things about Albi so i can’t wait to get stuck in”.
