NEWS: Fijian sevens specialist Kitione Taliga, a member of his country's Olympic gold medal-winning squad at the Rio Games, has signed with Stade Francais.

Taliga signed with the Stade until the end of the season, the Top 14 club announced Tuesday.

Taliga, 23, was a stand-out performer in the 2015-2016 World Rugby Sevens Series and links up with three other Fijian backs at injury-hit Stade in Christa Powell, Josaia Raisuqe and Waisea Nayacalevu.
