Salesi Rayasi Signs with French Club: What’s Next for the Hurricanes Winger?

Hurricanes winger Salesi Rayasi might soon don the Flying Fijians jersey as French club RC Vannes confirms his signing.

At 27, Rayasi had prioritized a spot in the All Blacks while contracted with the Hurricanes, but his move to France signals a shift in his rugby ambitions.

In an April interview with SUNsports, Rayasi expressed his openness to representing the Flying Fijians if given the opportunity. His father, Filipe Rayasi, played 13 Test matches for the Flying Fijians.

Rayasi has an impressive record with the Hurricanes, playing 51 games and scoring 30 tries. His performance in the NPC with Auckland saw him scoring 40 tries in 52 matches. Additionally, his athletic prowess earned him several selections to the New Zealand rugby 7s team. His two-season stint with RC Vannes will mark his first overseas rugby experience.
