Salesi Rayasi’s International Rugby Future Uncertain

Hurricanes winger Salesi Rayasi could be set to play for the Flying Fijians, following confirmation that he has signed with French club RC Vannes.

The 27-year-old initially aimed to play for the All Blacks while contracted with the Hurricanes, but his move to France has now made that commitment less pressing.

In an April interview with SUNsports, Rayasi expressed willingness to join the Flying Fijians if approached.

Rayasi’s father, Filipe, played 13 Test matches for the Flying Fijians.

Rayasi has an impressive record, having played 51 games in Super Rugby with the Hurricanes, including 33 as a starter, and scoring 30 tries. He also played for Auckland in the NPC, scoring 40 tries in 52 matches. His athletic prowess and scoring ability have also earned him several selections for the New Zealand rugby sevens team. His two-season contract with RC Vannes will mark his first experience playing abroad.
