Vakatawa makes squad to face Flying Fijians
November 4, 2020 11:50 am
Fiji born France rugby center Virimi Vakatawa is expected to line up against the Flying Fijians for the first time next week.
Vakatawa is one of the 28 players named by Head Coach Fabien Galthie to take on Fiji in its first Autumn Nations Cup match next week.
The 28-year-old Vakatawa has been dubbed as the best center in international rugby this season after his stellar performances in the Six Nations.
Last week against Ireland, Vakatawa scored a try and he also wore a jersey with the name of his village club printed at the back.
Vakatawa started his rugby journey at the Rara rugby club in Naluwai village in Naitasiri.
Also making the French squad are flyhalf Romain Ntamack and halfback Antonie Dupont who have been quite a revelation in the Six Nations this year.
France will play the Flying Fijians next Sunday at 3am.
