Transfer News: Racing 92 sign Dan Carter replacement
Fiji fly-half Ben Volavola will team up with Leone Nakarawa, Virimi Vakatawa and Joe Rokocoko at Racing 92 in France.
Racing announced the signatures of Volavola from Bordeaux-Begles and a second No.10 in Raphael Lagarde from second division club Bayonne.
The duo will vie for a starting place with Scotland’s Finn Russell, the big-name replacement for the departing All Black legend Dan Carter and France international Remi Tales, with Springbok Pat Lambie out with a long-term injury.
Club president Jacky Lorenzetti also confirmed the arrival of former All Black Dominic Bird and Simon Zebo from Munster and twice-capped France flanker Fabien Sanconnie from relegated Brive.
Volavola previously played for Super Rugby clubs such as the Waratahs, Crusaders, and most recently the Rebels.
