Fiji Airways Flying Fijians pivot Ben Volavola will team up with Leone Nakarawa, Virimi Vakatawa and Joe Rokocoko at Racing 92 in France.

Racing, surprisingly beaten by Castres in the Top 14 semi-final, 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 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.
