Raitini signs with Cronulla

December 22, 2012 7:00 pm

One of Fiji Sevens rugby’s latest debutants, Alipate Raitini has already been snatched away by rugby league.

Raitini debuted for Fiji in the Gold Coast and scored a brace of tries in the first leg of the IRB World Sevens series which got him noticed by NRL club, the Cronulla Sharks.

After trials last week, Raitini has signed a one-year deal with Cronulla and will join older cousin, Marika Koroibete of the West Tigers.

The 21-year-old, a former Fijian junior age group sprint champion, has also played for Fiji at the Pacific Nations Cup.

A hamstring strain has kept Raitini away from the field at his first week of training but he is expected to join the full-time squad when Cronulla resume pre-season training on January 7.

Raitini, who has moved into the Sutherland shire, will start the season in NSW Cup and most likely on the wing.

While he has committed to the club for one season, there is a mutual option to extend that deal into 2014.
