Fiji scrumhalf Frank Lomani has turned down an offer to join English club Wasps in the Premiership.
Lomani told The Fiji Sun that he also said no to the Melbourne Rebels when the Super Rugby season resumes in February.
Instead, Lomani will focus on preparing for next year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan with Fiji.
It was reported earlier in the month that Wasps were after the 22-year-old after an injury crisis in their halfback stocks.
“The Wasps deal didn’t work out. I just want to come back home and spend time with my family and rest after two years of non-stop rugby,” Lomani told The Fiji Sun.
“My focus now is the 2019 RWC, prepare well and do my family and country proud.
“I have always wanted to make my family proud every time I play, make my hometown proud and at the same time challenge youths that nothing is impossible.”
