Back-rower Alafoti Faosiliva joined Bath Rugby in 2013 from Bristol Rugby.
Following a stellar career in Rugby Sevens for Samoa, during which he was nominated for the 2010 IRB International Sevens Player of the Year, Fa'osiliva had a stint at Toulon before making the move to the West Country.
As a 19-year-old, Faosiliva represented Samoa at Under 21 level, and has since made several appearances for the senior Samoa team. As befits a former Sevens specialist, he has considerable speed endurance and power, which means he is a potent threat in the back row.
Faosiliva will be representing Samoa during the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
