Seilala Mapusua’s London Irish future is still unclear and it will be some time before it is sorted. The Samoa international is yet to sign a new deal at Irish, with clubs in France and Japan reportedly interested.

Mapusua told BBC Berkshire: “It’s weighing up the balance between lifestyle and financial gains – we’ve been really happy here.

“I’ve got some big choices to make but I’m confident that it’ll be the best for me and my family.”
