Sivivatu heads to France

WELLINGTON, March 29 – All Black winger Sitiveni Sivivatu will leave New Zealand after this year's Rugby World Cup to play with French club Clermont, reports said Tuesday.

The Fijian-born flyer signed a two-year deal with Top 14 champions Clermont after rejecting a contract extension from the New Zealand Rugby Union, Fairfax Media reported.

It said Sivivatu’s management team had confirmed the 28-year-old would move to France next year, with an official announcement expected on Wednesday.

Sivivatu has scored 27 tries in his 43 Tests for the All Blacks and is set to be a key part of the team’s campaign at the World Cup, which will be held in New Zealand from September 9 to October 23.
