Wing Lucky Mulipola, a draft player with the Highlanders earlier this year, liked the south so much he is making it a permanent move.

The Otago Rugby Football Union’s Director of Rugby, Jeff Wilson, said on Friday that Mulipola was transferring from Tasman to Otago.

“Lucky’s been out with a shoulder injury since the Super 14 but we know he’s a quality player and he’s a great acquisition for us,” said Wilson.

Mulipola, 24, had previously been in the Crusaders wider training group and was top try-scorer for Nelson Bays before Tasman was formed.

Mulipola’s signing comes just days after two further signings in the form of Northland centre Dan Bowden and Waikato number eight Steven Setephano. Friday was the cut-off day for player transfers.

Three players that are leaving Otago include George Whitelock for Canterbury, Chris Smylie for North Harbour and Chris King for Southland.
