Crusaders’ wing Seta Tamanivalu has signed a three year deal with Top 14 outfit, Bordeaux Bègles.

The club officially announced the signing today, ending rumours about where the powerful wing would end up.

The 6’2, 104kg winger has also fallen down the pecking order with the All Blacks in recent years, where he has amassed just three caps to date.

Bordeaux Begles are also favourites to capture former NRL star Semi Radradra’s signature from Toulon, meaning they could have one of the League’s most intimidating backlines next season.

He is set to earn easily in excess of €300,000 ($500,000 NZ) per season with Bordeaux.

It is also expected that Crusaders loose forward Jordan Taufua will move to a club outside of New Zealand, be it Europe or Japan.

There had been whispers that Taufua could make a shock move to Pro 14 Champions the Scarlets, although it is unlikely that Wayne Pivac’s side could compete with big money deals in France or Japan.
