Ulster Rugby have today confirmed that Leone Nakarawa will no longer join the province this summer. The Fijian forward, who won an Olympic gold medal with his country’s Sevens squad in 2016, was announced as joining the province in January and was due to have a 1 year contract.
An Ulster Rugby spokesperson said:
We can today confirm that, on receipt of a detailed medical report following an examination by the club at the weekend, Leone Nakarawa will no longer be joining Ulster Rugby for next season. This outcome is disappointing for both the player and Ulster Rugby, however, we will continue to build strongly with our preparations for next season. We wish Leone the very best for the future.
