New Zealand winger Sitiveni Sivivatu set to join Clermont
The 28-year-old All Blacks winger is understood to have agreed two-year deal with the Top 14 champions
All Blacks winger Sitiveni Sivivatu has reportedly agreed to sign a two-year contract with Top 14 champions Clermont.
The Fijian-born 28-year-old is set to leave Super 15 side Waikato Chiefs after the World Cup in September, with the deal expected to be confirmed on Wednesday.
Sivivatu will link up with compatriots including coach Vern Cotter, scrum-half Kevin Senio and No8 Sione Lauaki at the French club.
The winger is understood to have rejected New Zealand Rugby Union’s offer of a contract extension.
And his international team-mate Lauaki all but confirmed the deal on Twitter on Monday: “Sivivatu playing here next season, Good for Clermont and 4 him, Hope 2 play with my boy again..Happy Asm supporters.”
The 28-year-old winger made his international debut in 2005 and has been capped 43 times for the All Blacks, scoring 27 tries.
