David Tameilau Joins Narbonne

David Tameilau saw his contract with Newcastle fall apart earlier this fall but that doesn't mean he's leaving Europe. According to La Depeche in France Tameilau has signed on as a medical joker with Narbonne. The club is currently in Pro D2, the same competition that U.S.-elgiible Dave Ryan (Agen) and up and comer Christian Ostberg (Aurillac) play in. Tameilau should be a good fit for the Mediterranean club.

Tameilau of course made his big break through with the Eagles at the Americas Rugby Championship where he was arguably their best player. He then went on to play in PRO Rugby with his hometown San Francisco side. He saw off and on time but when he did play he was one of the most effective players in the league. Confusion over his contract has seen him off the radar for the last few months but if he can get more time with Montpellier that could change.
