Leicester have signed Fijian international Seru Rabeni.

The 25-year-old joins from Otago Highlanders, for whom he has played on the wing.

But he has also played at inside centre for Fiji, has scored one try in his 17 caps and featured in all four of Fiji's World Cup matches last autumn.

"He has that perfect balance between penetration and speed," Tigers backs coach Pat Howard told the club website. "We're sure he will fit in."

Meanwhile, Leicester will begin their pre-season preparations with a friendly against Cardiff Blues at Welford Road on Saturday, 28 August.
