The Melbourne Rebels have added attacking depth for the 2017 Super Rugby season with the signing of Australian Sevens star Pama Fou.
The 25-year-old will join the Rebels in August on a one-year contract after he was granted dispensation by the club this year to pursue his dream of competing in the Olympics with the Australian Sevens team.
The speedster is returning from injury after a freak accident at home saw his Olympic dream dashed when he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
The 196cm former Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) volleyball scholarship holder made his Sevens debut at the 2011 Gold Coast Sevens.
Fou, a Commonwealth Games bronze medallist (2014), is Australia’s third highest Sevens try scorer with 80 tries and 410 points in 121 games since his debut.
