Salesi Ma'afu: Cardiff Blues sign former Australia prop
Cardiff Blues have signed former Australia prop Salesi Ma'afu following his release by French club Toulon.

Ma'afu, 32, left the European champions by mutual agreement after being found guilty of assault and given a suspended four-month prison sentence last month.

In a statement, Blues said Ma'afu had joined "with immediate effect - subject to the normal visa process".

"We are thrilled to sign Salesi and welcome him to Cardiff Blues," said head coach Danny Wilson.

"He is a powerful prop forward. He has a fantastic pedigree in the game."

Ex-Northampton Saints forward Ma'afu, brother of former Cardiff Blues player Campese, switched codes from rugby league to union as a youngster.
