Tamanivalu joins exodus to Europe

Bordeaux revealed the news on their club website on Thursday (NZ time), with Tamanivalu making the move at the end of the 2018 Super Rugby season on a three-year contract.

Confirmation of the shift for the 25-year-old, who has five All Blacks caps, came just a day after it was announced Chiefs midfielder Charlie Ngatai had signed with another French club, Lyon.
