Chiefs sign Fisiiahi for two Super Rugby seasons

Hamilton Super Rugby franchise the Chiefs have signed Warrior Glen Fisiiahi
for the next two Super Rugby seasons.

Fisiiahi will return to Rugby Union from League and play for Super Rugby for
the Chiefs and ITM Cup rugby for the Counties Manukau Provincial Union.

The 24 year-old former Wesley College Sports Dux and Counties Manukau U18 rugby
player, who had offers to stay in rugby league said “I wanted a change
and to switch back to Union with the Chiefs.”

“I have really enjoyed the league environment but I have rekindled my
interest in rugby and want to try a different environment. I’m looking
forward to a new chapter in my sporting career and a fresh challenge.

The outside back said “I have been impressed by what I have seen at the
Chiefs and I believe it will be a good fit for me.”

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie “Glen is a great addition to our group. In
the mould of Asaeli Tikoirotuma, he is electric, has a strong skill set and
is an outstanding support player. The opportunity to roam on both sides of the
park in our game will suit him.”

Counties Manukau CEO Andrew Maddock said “We are excited to welcome Glen
back to Counties Manukau. He will be a great asset to our Union and complement
the Steelers well.”

After playing alongside Augustine Pulu and Charlies Piutau in the Wesley College
First XV, Fisiiahi started playing league for the Junior Warriors in 2009. He
joined the first grade Warriors side in 2011 and has been part of the NRL team
