Date published: May 28 2015

Clermont have completed the signings of two World Cup jokers for next season when they will be deprived of their internationals.

Fijian winger Albert Vulivuli and Georgian hooker Iuri Natriashvili will join the club for the first seven rounds of the season through to November while the internationals will be at the World Cup.

Vulivuli has plenty of experience in the Top 14, and finished this season at Montpellier, having previously played for Racing-Métro and La Rochelle.

Natriashvili spent two seasons with Brive and has since been playing in the French lower divisions.

"They are two players with solid experience of our championship and have shown a lot of enthusiasm to face this challenge," said head coach Franck Azéma.
