Racing 92 have officially sacked Fiji international Leone Nakarawa, an official statement has confirmed.
The stunning move comes after the sensational second row forward, widely considered to be among the best players in the sport, returned to the club two weeks late following his involvement in the 2019 World Cup with Fiji.

Racing’s statement accuses Nakarawa of “abandoning his post” and claims that “this is not the first time.”
Nakarawa, the 2018 European Player of the Year, is highly unlikely to be without a club for long given his quality as a player, with Sale Sharks boss Steve Diamond having recently stated that the English club has spoken to the Fijian.
