Livewire Hurricanes prop Loni Uhila will play for French club Clermont following next year's Super Rugby championship.

Tongan-born Uhila, 27, has signed a one-year deal with the option of two further seasons after that.

Uhila's impact with ball in hand off the bench was a notable feature of the Hurricanes' maiden title run this year.

The Waikato NPC player, nicknamed the "Tongan Bear", has also fought two professional boxing fights.
