Sale Sharks have today confirmed the signing of Flying Fijians back row forward ASAELI BOKO (29). He played three times at number 8 for the Flying Fijians in their European tour of November 2009, against Scotland, Ireland and Romania. The third game, in Bucharest, was a 29-18 win. He has been training at Carrington with the club since Summer, after ending a trial spell with Saracens in the latter stages of the 2009-10 season. Born in Nadi, on the main island of Viti Levu, Asaeli is one of the few players to have represented his country in both the Sevens and the full fifteen-a-side teams.
Head Coach, Mike Brewer said, “ I had the pleasure of working with Asaeli on the European tour last autumn and was impressed with him. He has been with us now training and conditioning and he has earned his contract to play for us.”
