Connacht have announced the signing of winger Sevu Reece from the Waikato Chiefs.

The 21-year-old Fijian winger was the youngest member of the Provincial Barbarians side that played against the Lions in the opening game of their tour of New Zealand last year.

His performances earned him place on the Waikato squad for the 2016 Mitre 10 Cup. In that season he went on to make 12 appearances scoring seven tries in the process.

He will join Connacht after completing the current season with Waikato.

Commenting on the signing, incoming Connacht Head Coach Andy Friend said: “We are delighted to announce that Sevu Reece will be joining Connacht ahead of the 2018/19 season. He is an exciting attacking player who will be a further addition to our back line next season.”

Following his signing for Connacht, Sevu Reece added: “I am really pleased to be signing for Connacht next season. Connacht is a proud club with a passionate support and I am looking forward to meeting the fans and my new team mates when I arrive there at the end of my season with Waikato. I will be doing everything I can to bring more success to the province.”
