The Melbourne Rebels have completed the signing of loosehead prop Pauliasi Manu from the Blues.
Manu has agreed a two-year deal at the Rebels and will compete with Nic Henderson and Eddie Aholelei for the number one jersey.
"Pauliasi has had strong ITM Cup form with Auckland this season and has had Super 15 experience," said Rebels head coach Damien Hill.
"In addition to his scrummaging, Pauliasi brings attacking skills and a competitive streak that is going to make the battle for starting loosehead prop very exciting over the next two years. We are all looking forward to Pauliasi becoming a Melbourne Rebel."
Manu will arrive in Melbourne having honed his skills at Auckland and the Blues under World Cup winner Tony Woodcock.
"I have learnt a lot from Tony and all my team-mates and am proud of my time with Auckland and the Blues," said Manu.
"I am really looking forward to the opportunity to push for a starting spot and build on my five Super Rugby caps as a Rebel."
