The 29-year-old played twice for Fiji during the 2015 Rugby World Cup, coming off the bench in the 23-13 defeat to Wales and the 47-15 win over Uruguay. He has scored 10 international tries.

“It has always been a dream of mine to play in England so the opportunity to join such a historical club was one I did not hesitate to take.” Seniloli told the Doncaster Knights website.

“I am absolutely delighted to have been presented with this amazing opportunity. I want to thank the Lord Jesus Christ, my family for their unwavering support and Clive for showing faith in my abilities.”

“My ambition is to do all I can to help the team enjoy a successful campaign and to show the clubs supporters my best rugby.”

Clive Griffiths, the Knights Director of Rugby said there were plenty of hurdles to go through to get the deal done.

“I am absolutely delighted to get him here. It has been a long and drawn out process with lots of red tape to get sorted. He also tells me it is hotter here than in Fiji! I’ve told him in reply, “to make the most of it!” Griffiths said.

“Henry was a standout player for Fiji during the Pacific nations tournament in June and will bring flair and experience to our team. Like Tom James, his support play is quality and he will bring some typical South Sea rugby to Castle Park.
