English Premiership club Bath signed Samoa loose forward Alafoti Fa'osiliva on Monday.

Fa'osiliva, 27, has represented Samoa at Sevens and full Test level and proved himself in English rugby while playing for Bristol last season.

The former Toulon player was part of the Samoa side which won the IRB World Sevens Series title in 2009-10 and he has gone straight into the Bath squad for the Premiership Rugby Sevens Series, which starts this weekend.

"I'm really excited to be coming to Bath and can't wait to get started with the Sevens on Thursday," he said.

"It's a great form of the game, and one I'm obviously quite familiar with, so it's a perfect way for me to get my Bath career under way."
