Transfers: Ben Tapuai (Sharks) will join UBB next season
The recruitment of the Union Bordeaux-Bègles is now complete. The Girondin club, trained next season by Yannick Bru, has found the last three reinforcements it was looking for. Two of them come from the Sharks where Bru is currently a consultant. As revealed on Sunday, South African prop Carlü Sadie has signed up for two years.
According to our information, center Ben Tapuai has also reached an agreement with Bordeaux leaders on the basis of a one-season contract, plus an optional second. The 34-year-old Australian, who passed through Harlequins and Bath in England, will strengthen the back lines. This season, Tapuai faced his future partners twice in the Champions Cup.
Finally, as indicated by Rugbyrama A few days ago, the Australian international third line Pete Samu (31 years old, 32 selections) will also join the club chaired by Laurent Marti for the next two seasons.
Remember that the UBB had already completed the arrivals of Damian Penaud, Paul Abadie, Tevita Tatafu, Romain Latterrade and Alexandre Ricard in recent weeks.
