At 33, the former center or winger of Stade Français (2012-2022) is preparing to leave the French championship and the RCT for a first experience in England, with the current seventh in the Premiership. Nayacalevu, Fiji’s 34-cap captain, stood out with his team in the historic 30-22 victory over England at Twickenham in late August in preparation for the 2023 World Cup, a competition that ended in the quarter-finals against same XV de la Rose (30-24).

According to the British media, the upcoming arrival of the current Toulonnais strengthens the departure chances of English center Manu Tuilagi, Sale player since 2020. “I can’t wait to play with some of the players I faced, like Tom Curry and George Ford. But I also know that there are a lot of very talented young players in the Sale Sharks team and I look forward to sharing my experience and helping them develop as much as possible,” Nayacalevu was quoted as saying in a statement. .
