Faleiva, 22, joins the Arrows from New Zealand National Provincial Championship side Hawke’s Bay.
The prop is now the third member of the Magpies to arrive at the club ahead of the 2022 season, joining the reigning NPC regular season champions’ versatile back Dennon Robinson-Bartlett and scrum coach Francisco Deformes in Toronto.
Prior to earning a roster spot on his hometown NPC team, the 6’4”, 285lb prospect featured for Netherlands club Bassets in the 2019 Dutch Ereklasse. Faleiva also spent time as an under-17 development athlete with Super Rugby side Hurricanes in 2015.
The forward has played his grassroots rugby with Hawke’s Bay club side Taradale, notably helping to guide the Maroons to the prestigious Nash Cup-Maddison Trophy double in late 2021.
