Super Rugby

Pisi set to join Bristol

Tokyo - Samoan flyhalf Tusi Pisi has left Japanese club Suntory Sungoliath to join English club Bristol Rugby.

Pisi joins Bristol on a two-year deal, putting an end to his time with the Japan-based Sunwolves once the current Super Rugby season comes to an end.

"I'm delighted to be joining Bristol Rugby and look forward to playing club rugby in England for the first time during my career," Pisi said in comments on the team's official website.

Pisi has made twenty-eight appearances for Samoa, while also representing Toulon, the Hurricanes and the Crusaders during a distinguished club career.

Pisi, a two-time Samoan World Cup star, has been one of the Sunwolves' best players after four games.

The Sunwolves begin their three-game tour through South Africa this weekend, when they face the Kings on Saturday.
