Flying Fijian Gabriel Lovobalavu has found himself a new club after his departure from English Premiership club Wasps in May this year.

Rugby Pass reports the 33-year-old has joined French club Oyonnax alongside another Fijian 21‑year‑old Adrian Sanday.

Lovobalavu has represented Fiji at two World Cups, helping the team to the 2007 quarter‑finals and was also part of the squad at the 2015 tournament in England.

He played 86 times for Toulon between 2008 and 2012, moving to Bayonne where he spent five seasons, making 78 appearances.

He joined Wasps for the 2017/18 season and the centre played 19 times this season.

Lovobalavu is not in the Flying Fijians 38 member training squad for the two tests against the Maori All Blacks next month.

Fiji is pooled with Australia, Wales, Georgia and Uruguay in the Rugby World Cup in Japan which kicks off in September this year.

The Flying Fijians’ opening match in the Rugby World Cup is against the Wallabies on 21st September.
