Fijian player dies in France

Fijian rugby player Nemani Waka passed away in France earlier this week following a long battle with tongue cancer.

The 34 year-old second rower played club rugby in Wellington and for East Coast in the Heartland Championship before stints with Chambéry and Rouen Normandie in France.

Waqa, who also played Rugby League for Wellington Orcas was first diagnosed with tongue cancer three years ago, shortly after moving to France with his partner.
