French rugby’s ability to adopt Fijian born players has been brought sharply into focus.

According to Rugby Pass an offer has been made to two Fijian players.

Souyaux Angouleme Club wing Ledua Mau has been offered to join the France 7s training squad to prepare for the Olympic Games in Japan next year.

Perpignan have given Alivereti Duguivalu Nauga a two-year deal which could see him switch allegiance to France.

Nauga is the son of Nadroga Rugby head coach Esala Nauga and signed a two-year contract with Perpignan RC having come through their Academy.

France has already welcomed wing Virimi Vakatawa into their 15s squad and have Tavite Veredamu in their sevens team with the Fijian having served in the French Foreign Legion which he joined as a teenager.

Now Mau and Nauga face similar choices as they map out their immediate rugby careers in a foreign country.
