Transfer News: Samoa international joins Championship club

Yorkshire Carnegie has further strengthened their squad with the capture of Samoan international second-row Fa’atiga Lemalu for the remainder of the 2018-19 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Lemalu joins Carnegie from New Zealand Mitre 10 Champions Auckland having helped the team to a Premiership victory for the first time since 2007 and the 17th time in all with a dramatic 40-33 extra time victory over Canterbury at Eden Park.
