NEWS: Fiji wing Josaia Raisuqe, sacked from Top 14's Stade Francais after a drunken rampage in July, has been handed a lifeline by newly promoted second flight outfit Nevers, the club said on Monday.

Raisuqe was accused by a 35-year-old woman of sexual assault outside a Paris nightspot which sparked a brawl between the player and the woman's friends.

The player was fired by Stade Francais in mid-August.

Raisuqe, who was celebrating his 23rd birthday on the night of the incident, claimed he had little memory of the altercation due to how much alcohol he had consumed.
