Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Lon­don: Exeter have signed Fiji in­ter­na­tional scrum-half Niko Matawalu from Bath un­til the end of the sea­son, with a view to a longer term deal. Matawalu has made 10 Premier­ship ap­pear­ances since join­ing Bath from Pro 12 club Glas­gow ahead of last sea­son. The 27-year-old, who can also play as a winger, has won 28 in­ter­na­tional caps. “He’s an ex­cit­ing player, some­one you de­scribe as an ‘X-Fac­tor’ type player,” Chiefs head coach Rob Bax­ter told the club’s web­site.

“We’re not ex­pect­ing him to be 100% straight away as he has had a rel­a­tively lengthy in­jury, but he’s fully fit now, he’s ready to play, and we’re hop­ing he will get some good game time dur­ing these au­tumn in­ter­na­tion­als.” BBC Sports
