Edinburgh Rugby secure the signing of Aleki Lutui from Worcester Warriors.

Edinburgh Rugby head coach Stevie Scott has admitted his delight at the acquisition of Aleki Lutui from Worcester Warriors.

The Tonga forward, who has been capped 40 times for his country, has been branded a "big, aggressive ball carrier" by Scott.

"He's a top international player with a wealth of experience and has been one the top performers in the Premiership," Scott told BBC Sport.

"He's a big, aggressive ball carrier in excellent condition and, being Tongan, he likes the physical side of the game, which will be a huge asset to the club for the coming seasons."

Lutui has made 168 appearances for Edinburgh.
