Vasiteri loses Connacht contract

October 20, 2017 2:29 am

Ireland’s Connacht rugby club has confirmed that the signing of Fiji Airways Drua centre, Eroni Vasiteri will not proceed.

Vasiteri was recently handed a nine-week ban for eye gouging Canberra Vikings hooker Folau Fainga’a in the National Rugby Championship in Australia.

The inside centre had been due to arrive in Ireland once his paperwork was completed, but his unavailability to play for nine weeks would have left Connacht without his services for a significant part of his one-year contract.

The Irish province say they’ll make announcement on an alternative signing shortly.
