Tamanivalu set for Crusaders swansong

Fiji-born Crusaders centre/winger Setareki Tamanivalu will play his last Super Rugby match tomorrow night in Christchurch.

The 26-year-old has been named in the Crusaders starting 15 to face the Lions in the grand finale and his speed and strength on the right wing will be an added bonus for the reigning champions.

Tamanivalu joined the Crusaders last year and has made 23 appearances, scoring 28 tries and 70 points to be amongst the top try scorers last season.

He made his Super Rugby debut with the Chiefs in the 2015 season and the former Lelean Memorial School student made his All Blacks debut in June, 2016.

Tamanivalu moves to France later this year after signing a three-year deal with Bordeaux Begles.
