Former Swire Shipping Fijian Drua winger Vinaya Habosi has continued his impressive performance at the Top 14 competition after scoring two tries for his Racing 92 side as they thrashed Sireli Maqala’s Bayonne side 55-14 earlier this morning.

Habosi gained 67 metres in 8 runs with 2 line breaks and also completed 7 tackles in the match.

The 23-year-old winger will be aiming for a spot in the Fiji Water Flying Fijians squad for the upcoming June test and the Rugby World Cup in France.

Olympic gold medallist Sireli Maqala started for Bayonne but could not do much to help his side as they went down to a much more determined Racing side.

In other top 14 matches, Peceli Yato and Alivereti Raka’s Clermont beat Peniasi Dakuwaqa’s Stade Francais 32-16, Setareki Tuicuvu and Mesulame Kunavula helped Brive beat Montpellier 27-26, Josua Tuisova and Tavite Veredamu’s Lyon beat Taniela Ramasibana and Edward Sawailau’s Perpignan 41-31, Aminiasi Tuimada and Jale Vatubua’s Pau side thrashed Josaia Raisuqe, Vilimoni Botitu and Adrea Cocagi’s Castres side 40-3 while Jiuta Wainiqolo’s Toulon fell short to Stade La Rochelle losing 23-8.
