Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill says new recruit Mesulame Kunavula brings the ‘X-factor’ to his squad. Kunavula helped Fiji finish the last World Rugby Sevens Series in first place and Cockerill has backed the 23-year-old to make a big impact in Edinburgh.
“Mesu really stood out during his time representing Fiji on the Sevens circuit,” said Cockerill, as reported by the BBC. “His ability to beat a man, as well as offload in the tackle, are really world class.”
He added: “We have been looking at adding players who offer something different – that bit of X-factor – and I certainly think Mesu brings that dynamic to an already talented squad.”
