Midi Olympique claim that Racing have now told the player that he will not be considered for selection until he trims down to 140kg, the weight he was at pre-tournament, leaving Tameifuna facing a weight cut of 20kg.
It is not the first time Racing have been unhappy with the 28-year-old’s weight.
In 2018, Tameifuna returned for pre-season weighting 166kg.
