Bulumakau joins Glasgow

Glasgow have signed Fiji-born winger Junior Bulumakau from the British Army on a one-year contract.

The 24-year-old has been training with the Warriors for two months and ran in a try from the halfway line in a pre-season defeat by Clermont.

Bulumakau's father played for Fiji Sevens team but came over to Scotland when his son was 10 to serve in the army.

The new Warriors signing followed in his footsteps in 2010 and has served with The Royal Scots Borderers and played for the army's rugby team while also featuring for Heriot's in the BT Premiership.

Bulumakau told his club's website: "It's a huge honour to sign for the Guinness Pro12 champions and I'm really happy to be here.

"Opportunities like this only come along once and you need to grab them. I enjoyed playing my first game for the club on Friday and I can't wait to run out at Scotstoun.

"Rugby has been in my blood and in my whole family. To be a professional rugby player is a massive honour."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: "Junior has a very good understanding of the game and has shown an excellent work ethic on and off the field."
