Connacht have signed Auckland utility back Stacey Ili.
The 25-year-old has been part of the Auckland Rugby set-up since 2012 and can provide cover in midfield and the back three.
"I am really excited and grateful to be given the opportunity to play with Connacht and under coach Pat Lam. I appreciate all the efforts that Connacht Rugby has made to ensure this smooth relocation for me. I am eager to get started and be a part of this awesome team," Ili said.
He will arrive in Galway later this week and Lam believes he will be a big asset to the squad.
"As we look to challenge in both the Guinness PRO12 and European Champions Cup, the addition to our squad of a player like Stacey increases our options all across the back line. Stacey is someone we've been looking at for a while now. He is an exciting and skillful player who will complement the game we want to play."
