Fiji Airways Flying Fijians World Cup skipper looking for a new club
Fiji Airways Flying Fijians World Cup skipper Dominiko Waqaniburotu is looking for a new club.
This was after it emerged in French media that he will not extend his one-year stay at Pau.
The 34-year-old hooked up with the Top 14 club on a one-season deal following the 2019 World Cup in Japan, but he has not had the best of times.
He made just four league appearances (and one in the Challenge Cup) in an injury-hit campaign that was officially terminated on Thursday by French officials due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Prior to his switch to Pau, Waqaniburotu has spent seven productive seasons at Brive. He was highly regarded at Brive. Their coach Jeremy Davidson stating in January 2019: “He is a player who has an aura in the group.
“He does not let himself down.
“He is a tough guy, a leader of men. He embodies an authority, not by his words but by his actions.”
Capped 51 times by his country, Waqaniburotu had led Fiji to a historic win in Paris over France in 2018.-Rugby Pass
