Fijian-born Virimi Vakatawa will play for France in the Gold Coast 7s in Australia this weekend.

France 7s coach Federic Pommarel said the Naitasiri native was a big hit with the side last season.

“I’m delighted that he has been able to play for us in the opening round of the season,” he said.

Pommarel rates Vakatawa alongside the likes of playmaker Terry Bouhraoua and Stephen Parez.

France only reached three Cup finals last season and will be hoping to be more consistent this year if they are to improve on their overall position of 10th and challenge the top four.
