London Irish winger Sailosi Tagicakibau has joined South African side DHL Stormers on loan for the rest of the Super Rugby season.
The 31-year-old will link up the squad in preparation for their tour of Australia and New Zealand.
The Samoa international signed for Irish in 2005 and has made 124 appearances for the Exiles.
"He has been an outstanding servant for our club," said London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith.
"We have a lot of options in our back three currently, so we can afford to let him go to Cape Town to continue to play regular rugby."
