Inaki Basauri Changing Clubs

Inaki Basauri is on the move but is staying in France where he has spent nearly his entire career. Basauri is leaving Tarbes in the Pro D2 and is heading to Stade Nantais in the Federale 2 (hat tip to Americas Rugby News for breaking the news, definitely worth a follow). It's a step down in level of play for Basauri but he is getting old and he's married to someone he met in France meaning that being able to stay and play in France is important.

Basauri spent the last three season with Tarbes, all in the Pro D2. He played 21 matches for Tarbes this season with ten starts. Overall he appeared 47 times for the club. Prior to that he spent a season each with Perigueux, L'Aquila, Lannemezan, Agen, Marmande, and Massy. Basauri has also been to the last World Cup with the Eagles.
