Prop-forward Logovi'i Mulipola joined Newcastle Falcons in the summer of 2018 after seven seasons with Leicester Tigers. The Samoan international can play on both sides of the scrum and made 100 Premiership appearances for the Tigers, for whom he played a further 22 times in Europe. Winning the Premiership and Anglo-Welsh Cup with Leicester, Mulipola's international career began with his first Samoan cap against Papua New Guinea in 2009. Going on to play in the 2011 Rugby World Cup, Mulipola linked up with the Falcons in August 2018 after playing for his country in the Pacific Nations Cup and Rugby World Cup qualifiers. Establishing himself as a regular for the Falcons in his debut season, Mulipola's ability to play on both sides of the scrum proved one of his many assets.
