Worcester Warriors have signed Samoa international Alafoti Faosiliva
Faosiliva has 18 international caps and previously played for French Top 14 club Toulon and Aviva Premiership side Bath Rugby.
Head coach Carl Hogg is hopeful the flanker will bring valuable experience to the side.
"Alafoti is a great athlete and his versatility will add greater strength and depth to our back row," he said.
"He is a big ball-carrier with international experience. Those are key attributes which will stand him in good stead ahead of the new campaign, so we're excited about seeing what he can do out on the pitch."
Faosiliva, who was released from Bath in May after pleading guilty to an assault charge, said: "Warriors are an ambitious club with a clear vision which is something that really appealed to me.
"The set-up at Sixways is fantastic and everything is in place for you to succeed as a professional rugby player.
"Now I just can't wait to get started and I'm hungry to get out there and compete for my place in the team."
