TJ Ioane, who joined from Sale Sharks, is a current Samoan international back-rower, winning the most recent of his 17 caps during this summer’s Pacific Nations Cup and Rugby World Cup qualifiers.
The 29-year-old made a big impact during his time in the Premiership, with his physicality and ball handling skills coming to the fore since making the move to England in 2015. Making 52 appearances for the Sharks, his previous clubs include the Highlanders in Super Rugby and Wellington and Otago in New Zealand’s domestic competition.
