BSMI are delighted to confirm that a deal has been brokered which has seen Flying Fijian International tighthead prop Dan Koroi join Greene King IPA Championship side London Scottish for the 2016/17 season.
Born in Fii, Dan moved to New Zealand with his parents as a one year old. Recognised as an exciting prospect from a young age, he represented New Zealand U17’s. Dan went on to represent Wellington Lions at ITM Cup level where he impressed against some of the finest frontrowers in NZ rugby.
A strong and explosive tighthead specialist, Dan is also able to play at loosehead. His exploits for Wellington soon caught the attention of the Flying Fijian selectors and he was called up to the squad for the 2014 November tests. A move to Italian Eccellenza side Mogliano saw Dan continue his professional career in Europe.
Having impressed for Fiji during the 2015 Pacific Nations Cup, Dan received a call up to the squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. He has continued to enjoy top form in 2016, helping Fiji to secure the Pacific Nations Cup title.
