Turner joins Warriors on loan
Edinburgh's George Turner has joined Glasgow Warriors on season-long loan
Glasgow Assistant Coach Jonathan Humphreys said: "Siua comes with a lot of experience, having played regularly in Super Rugby over the past two seasons. He will be a great addition to our squad and will add to the competition at tight-head."
Halanukonuka made his debut for Highlanders in 2016 and has since made 26 appearances in Super Rugby.
He becomes the 10th new player to join the Warriors ahead of the new season, with Huw Jones, Callum Gibbins, Oli Kebble, Adam Hastings, Lelia Masaga, Samuela Vunisa, Kiran McDonald, Brandon Thomson and George Turner already signed up.
