    Radike Samo signs with Melbourne Rebels for upcoming Super Rugby season

    Radike Samo will return to Australian rugby after joining the Melbourne Rebels for the upcoming Super Rugby season.

    Samo, who made 23 Test appearances for the Wallabies, last played Super Rugby with Queensland in 2013 before linking with Japanese Top League club Kintetsu Liners.

    He was a key member of the Reds squad that lifted the Super Rugby trophy in 2011.

    "I am very keen to give Super Rugby one last shot and I feel I have a lot to offer," Samo said in a Rebels statement.

    "I am really excited about coming to Melbourne. I'm also very grateful for the opportunity to join the Victorian Rugby community. There's a big Pacific Islander Rugby family in Melbourne, and I'm looking forward to becoming part of that."

    Samo will join former Reds team-mates Scott Higginbotham, Mike Harris and Dom Shipperley at the Rebels and he adds depth to Tony McGahan's back row stocks in Melbourne.

    He previously played for the Brumbies before stints in France and Japan.

    I bet he's still got that special something. Just hope he doesn't bring it out playing against us.

    Sir Nathan Sharpe, wasn't playing at 38 was he?

    Say Radike's partner had a son when Radike was 18 years old. Radike Jnr would be 20 ......

    Absolutely great guy - love to see him playing another 10 years. Actually be good to see Hodgo at 7 and Radike 6 for the World cup.
