Plymouth Albion have re-signed Fijian international forward Sam Matavesi.

The Cornish-born 23-year-old, who was released last summer, had been playing at South West One side Camborne, where he scored 15 tries in eight matches.

He first joined the club as an 18-year-old in 2010 before returning to Camborne, and then came back to Brickfields for the first time in 2012.

Matavesi played three times for Fiji in 2013, all as a replacement and comes in after injury to Dave Fisher.

"Sam has been training with us for the last few weeks and during that time he has shown his desire to play at the highest level possible," said Albion boss Graham Dawe.

"Sam is a natural born rugby player. He's got a multitude of skills and got the ability to play any style of rugby. Hopefully, he can make a really good impact."
