Connacht halt Fijian centre's deal
TRANSFER NEWS: Connacht have stopped all contractual discussion with Fijian centre Eroni Vasiteri due to eye-gouging ban.
Due to a nine-week suspension, Vasiteri would not have been in a position to proceed with the move until later in the season.
Connacht Rugby wishes Eroni Vasiteri every success in his future career and hope to make an announcement on an alternative signing shortly.
28-year-old Eroni was to join from the National Rugby Championship in Australia where he is currently playing for Fijian side Fijian Drua.
He has previously played for French Top 14 side Agen and Nadroga Rugby Fiji, where he was voted the best player of the Fijian Championship in 2014.
Upon the announcement of his signing back in September Eroni Vasiteri stated: "I am hugely excited about this latest challenge in my career. I cannot wait to get over to Ireland and start training with my new teammates.
"The new PRO14 Championship is an exciting competition and I can’t wait to line out for Connacht in the season ahead. Connacht has a legendary support in the Sportsground and I look forward to representing the province,"
