Edinburgh Rugby can today confirm that Tongan hooker Aleki Lutui has left the club to join Gloucester Rugby.

The 35 year old, who made eight appearances for the Murrayfield men last season, has signed a one-year deal with the Cherry and Whites, signalling a return to the English Premiership.

Lutui joined Edinburgh in April 2013 following seven seasons and 168 appearances for Worcester Warriors, a club he joined in 2006 from the Chiefs in Super Rugby.
