Harlequins trialist Alofa Alofa has done enough to land a permanent switch to the Stoop after agreeing terms with the former Premiership champions this week.

The former New South Wales Waratahs 25-year-old, who has spent pre-season with director of rugby John Kingston's men, has Top 14 experience with La Rochelle and has won three Test caps for Samoa, having started his career with rugby league outfit Sydney Roosters.

Alofa has proved his fitness having battled back from injury and Kingston is happy to take a punt on the winger following last week's exit of Ollie Lindsay-Hague.

“I am really pleased to have secured the signing of Alofa. He is a dynamic and powerful player with the ability to break the line," he said.

“His versatility in being able to play outside centre and wing is an added bonus and I have no doubt our supporters will enjoy watching him when he puts on the Harlequins shirt.

“Alofa has been undertaking rigorous rehab over recent weeks and we are delighted that he has hit all the requisite markers.”

Alofa added: “I’m grateful to Harlequins and John Kingston for giving me this exciting opportunity to play in the top tier of English rugby.

"Harlequins is an incredibly prestigious club and joining in its 150th year is a real honour.

“I’ve been with the group throughout the pre-season campaign and I can’t wait to pull on the jersey and do the club and its supporters proud.”
