NOLA Gold Sign Hughston, Austin Pen Fangaiuiha

A couple of Major League Rugby sides announced signings yesterday. The NOLA Gold let it be known that they have signed Matt Hughston while Austin announced they signed Sione Fangaiuiha. Hughston comes to NOLA Gold having played with the Ohio Aviators in PRO Rugby. Prior to that Hughston played with Charlotte and with the USA South Panthers. He's a back-row player that can also play on the back line if needed.

Fangaiuiha joins Austin after playing for Arkansas State where he was getting a degree in computer science. Before coming to the U.S. he played for several rugby league sides in Canberra and then for the Austin Blacks.

In a press release from the club Fangaihuha said "I am very excited for this opportunity to play professionally for Austin Elite not only to play alongside very talented players from around the world, but I am also looking forward to learning from them and the coaching staff." Please welcome Sione to the Major League Rugby 2018 season in Austin.
