Fiji Sevens star Rawaca joins La Rochelle

Date published: January 18 2017

Top 14 high-flyers La Rochelle have announced the signing of Fiji Sevens international Savenaca Rawaca.

The 25-year-old previously signed for Saracens last year before pulling out of the move in September due to personal reasons.

Rawaca is set to spend the next couple of days undergoing medical and physical tests at the team's base.

After two seasons with the Fiji Sevens side Rawaca has scored 41 tries in 54 matches, and was a gold medal winner with the Fiji team at the Olympics in Rio.

La Rochelle have been the surprise package in the Top 14 this season, sitting one point behind first-placed Clermont having lost just four of their 16 league matches.
