Mosese Tuipulotu, the brother of Scotland centre Sione, is reportedly set for a move to Scotland in the summer.

The younger of the Tuipulotu brothers - who qualify for Scotland through their Greenock-born grandmother - has long been on the radar of Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend

"I actually had a chat with him two years ago by mistake, because Sione had given his old mobile to him, and I phoned to chat to Sione and got him instead,” the Scotland head coach said last year. 

Reports last year suggested Scottish Rugby had offered a long-term deal worth more than £100,000 a year. However, Mosese opted to stay in Australia at that point. 

He said at the time: "It's always been a dream of mine to play for the Wallabies and to wear the gold jersey,

"Our grandma's Scottish and we're all really proud of Sione that he's representing part of our heritage.

"I'm backing gold. Obviously he's my brother and that's my blood and I'm always going to support him, but I was born in Australia and I'm always going to support the Wallabies."

Now it seems Tuipulotu has had a change of heart after finding game-time limited again this season - his only appearance this season so far came in a 12-minute cameo off the bench in a win over the Crusaders. 

Reports suggest the 22-year-old will leave the Waratahs and sign for Edinburgh.

A move to the capital would likely present more opportunities than joining his brother at Scotstoun, where he'd be competing not only with his sibling but also  Scotland pair Huw Jones and Stafford McDowall for a spot in the midfield. 

Edinburgh's midfield options include Scotland pair James Lang and Mark Bennett, plus Chris Dean - who made his 150th appearance for the club recently - and Matt Currie, one of the outstanding performers in their current campaign.
