Former Wallaby Timana Tahu will play for Denver in the inaugural Pro Rugby North America league.

Tahu, who won four caps for Australia in 2008, has experience of both union and league. After time in league with Newcastle Knights, Parramatta Eels and Penrith Panthers, he played for the Waratahs in Super Rugby and then returned to the 13-man code with Newcastle.

He will now bring that experience to the new Pro League at Denver. He becomes the latest international to commit to the league, following in the footsteps of South Africa's Pedrie Wannenburg, Italy's Mirco Bergamasco and Canada's Phil Mackenzie.
