Tongan international Sione Kalamafoni moved to Kingsholm from Nottingham Rugby ahead of the 2012-13 season.

He started three of his country's four matches in Rugby World Cup 2011 as blindside flanker and appeared as a replacement in the fourth. He particularly caught the eye in the memorable 19-14 victory over France when he was named Man of the Match.

Sione has been a revelation in his time at Kingsholm, impressing with his powerful ball carrying and work in defence. So impressive in fact, that he was named as the Season Ticket Holders Player of the Season at the end of the 2012/13 season. 

Since then, Sione has proved to be one of the most dynamic and powerful back rowers in the Premiership and was selected for Rugby World Cup 2015. He was voted Players' Player of the Season and Coaches' Player of the Season for 2015-16.
