Will Leicester Fainga’anuku (23 years old, 2 caps) play in France next season? Soon at the end of the contract, the all black winger is in any case popular in France. According to our information, Union Bordeaux-Bègles and Clermont are interested in the potential of the powerful New Zealander (1.88m, 104kg), capped twice last year and author of 37 tries in 82 games with his province.
The UBB, very ambitious on the market, is preparing the reorganization of its background. Santiago Cordero and Geoffrey Cros are out of contract and Federico Mori has already confirmed his future departure for Bayonne. After hiring Damian Penaud, the Girondin club would hit hard again by attracting Leicester Fainga’anuku, one of the last all-black nuggets, capable of playing center or winger. On the Clermont side, recruiters are looking for a three-quarters of international stature to compensate for the departure … of Damian Penaud at UBB.
Beyond the competition between tricolor teams, the leaders of the clubs concerned will have to be convincing to enlist the one who applies for the World Cup in France. In the event of coming to the Top 14, Leicester Fainga’anuku would inevitably put his international career on hold.
