Tongia to join Bayonne

Date published: October 4 2016

Hawke's Bay and Highlanders wing Ryan Tongia has arrived in Bayonne ahead of signing a contract with the Top 14 outfit as a medical joker.

The 26-year-old Brisbane-born back, who played rugby league in 2011 for Wakefield, is set to come in for the injured Martín Bustos Moyano.

Bustos Moyano had surgery last week on his injured wrist and is unavailable for three months, with Tongia able to cover wing and full-back.
