Ratini to Stade Francais?

Date published: August 6 2015

Fijian winger Alipate Ratini is on the verge of joining Stade Français just weeks after being fired by Grenoble.

The 24-year-old parted ways with Grenoble last month for off-field indiscretions and was due to return to Fiji to resolve his personal problems.

However according to RMC, he is going to sort out his playing future first, and is on the brink of signing for Top 14 champions Stade Français.

Currently out of action with a torn Achilles, he would not be available until the end of 2015, or the start of the new year.

Prior to his injury, Ratini had scored ten tries in the Top 14 last season, and was the leading scorer in the competition at the time.
