Cornish Pirates have signed former England youth player Suva Ma'asi.

The 21-year-old is the son of former Pirates and Tonga hooker Viliami Ma'asi and has been part of Northampton and Yorkshire Carnegie's academies.

"In the process of converting from a midfield back into a hooker, Suva is someone who has all the attributes," said Pirates boss Chris Stirling.

"With an excellent work ethic and character, he ticks the boxes and is an outstanding young man."
