As the build up to the final Bledisloe Cup continues this week, the Wallabies and Rebels teams are likely to miss Fijian star Marika Koroibete next season.

The Daily Telegraph reported Japanese club Panasonic Wild Knights are attempting to lure reigning John Eales medalist Marika Koroibete with a stunning four-year, $3 million contract.

But Australian Rugby will have a replacement in fellow Fijian and “Melbourne Storm flyer Suliasi Vunivalu on their books for next season, while fellow Fijian Filipo Daugunu has emerged as a star on the wing after his impressive Test debut last weekend against the All Blacks,” the report said.
