The BBC reports that the Fiji International, who was discovered by Rugby 7s great, Waisale Serevi in 2007 is out of contract in the summer.

Goneva has scored four tries in nine games this season, a total of 35 tries in 80 matches since joining the Tigers in 2012. In 2014 he won Players’ Player of the Year at the Rugby Players’ Association awards.

“He is getting to an age where he is looking to move on,” said Cockerill.
