Fiji's Kunavore to join Toulouse rugby side

4:18 pm on 17 October 2005

Fiji rugby center, Maleli Kunavore, has turned his back on his country to pursue a club contract in France.

Kunavore will join Toulouse tomorrow in the Top 14 French club competition.

The 21-year old who made his debut for Fiji in the World Cup qualifying game against Samoa in July is also out of the Fiji side for the tour to Europe.

Fiji coach, Wayne Pivac, says he isn't happy about Kunavore's decision and says he could have got a better deal with any overseas club after the tour.
