Harlequins have signed Munster and former New Zealand centre Francis Saili on a "long-term" contract.

Saili won his only two All Blacks Test caps in 2013, featuring in victories against Argentina and Japan.

The 26-year-old spent two seasons with Pro12 side Munster, having previously played for the Blues in Super Rugby.

"I've been mightily impressed with him as a person and I know he's a great rugby player," Quins director of rugby John Kingston told BBC Radio London.

"He's an excellent rugby player; you don't get to play for the All Blacks at 22 years of age unless you can play."
