Fiji international Temo Mayanavanua, with the lock set to join the men in Black, Green and Gold ahead of the 2023/24 season.

The second row arrives at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens from French side Lyon OU, where he has spent three seasons and racked up 55 appearances so far across the Top14 and European competitions.

Mayanavanua, who clocks in at 6’6” and 120kgs, has scored two tries for Lyon and previously enjoyed a three-season stint with Northland in New Zealand’s National Provincial Championship.

Born in Bau, Mayanavanua captained his country’s Under-20s side in 2017 before making his senior international debut against Georgia in 2020 – he has racked up nine Test caps so far for the Flying Fijians, and scored on his uncapped debut against the Barbarians.

Mayanavanua is also the nephew of Sevens legend Osea Kolinisau, who captained Fiji to their first Olympic gold medal in 2016.
