Fiji 7s robust winger and Olympic Gold Medalist Savenaca Rawaca is off to La Rochelle, France.

Rawaca who was spotted at the French Embassy this morning went in to lodge his visa and also met with the French Ambassador to Fiji Michel Djokovic who was seen having a discussion with the sevens star.

La Rochelle is understood to have made a better offer to Rawaca which may have caused him to turn down his contract with Saracens from England.

Rawaca is expected to link up with Levani Botia and Kini Murimurivalu who play for La Rochelle.
