Nakaitaci on hold by French Rugby

December 20, 2016 11:09 pm

Fiji born, France winger Noa Nakaitaci’s trade of playing for his adopted country is on hold after the French Rugby dropped a bombshell that they will no longer pick players for their national side who don’t have a French passport.

While World Rugby are planning to change regulations allowing foreign players to join another national team, the French Rugby Union has made the decision to no longer select foreign players to promote French talent.

So far, the World Rugby law allowed a foreign player to join the French national team after three consecutive years of residence.
