Exeter Chiefs complete Nemani Nadolo transfer

Exeter Chiefs have finally completed the signing of Fiji international winger Nemani Nadolo from the French side Bourgoin.

Nadolo, 23, provisionally joined the Chiefs earlier in the month, but has been waiting for a visa.

The winger told the club website: "I can't wait to get involved in the English Premiership, I've heard a lot of good things."

Nadolo saw his new club beat Leicester Tigers 35-10 in the LV= Cup.

He added: "It's a fresh start for me and my career and hopefully coming here will benefit me for future honours.

"I've signed for 18 months so I've got the rest of this season and next year and I can't wait to get out there."

Chiefs Head Coach Rob Baxter has previously hinted that he wants to get his new recruit up to speed as quickly as possible. The former Waratahs star could find himself thrown into the fray as early as this weekend, when the Chiefs travel to Newcastle Falcons in their final group game in the LV= Cup.
