FORMER Flying Fijian Josh Matavesi will soon be making a switch to Worcester Warriors for next season's Aviva Premiership.
Matavesi, who is also a former Fiji under-20 player, has agreed to a deal to join with fellow Flying Fijian, Ravai Fatiaki.
According to a report in the Falmouth Packet the "signing of Matavesi will complete head coach Richard Hill's recruitment drive ahead of the 2012/13 campaign and will give Worcester an extra attacking threat in midfield".
Matavesi, who plays for the Racing Metro in the French Top 14 competition, was born in Camborne, England, to an English mother and a Fijian father.
Despite playing for the England U20 squad for the 2009 Six Nations, Matavesi opted to play for Fiji.
He played for the Camborne RFC ù the club his father and former Fiji Barbarian Sireli Matavesi used to play for ù in his early days.
The 21-year-old then joined the Exeter Chiefs before making his debut for the Flying Fijians in the 2009 Autumn International against Scotland, playing at fullback.
Josh also played for the Baby Flying Fijians in the 2010 International Rugby Board Junior World Cup.
The Worcester Warriors has signed Josh as a centre but coach Hill would be hoping to slot him at both fullback and full-half positions, provided his impressive versatility.
