French club Brive have announced the signing of England centre Riki Flutey from Wasps on a two-year deal.

The versatile New Zealand-born back has won six caps for England and scored his first international try in the Six Nations opener against Italy.

The 29-year-old Flutey joins his fellow England team-mate Andy Goode at Brive, who are currently in sixth place in the French league.

It's been hard to ignore his nationality thusfar, but a 29 year old Kiwi playing in France in the english team???

That does have a nice ring to it, no?

Indeed it does.
My initial reaction was, "Jesus Christ, that&#39;s messed up."

Another blow for Wasps then. He&#39;s very good at his best.

Hopefully this means he&#39;ll forefit his residency and we can get a decent 12 into the England side.

Otherwise, meh.

Wasn&#39;t Perry Freshwater in the same situation when he used to play for England and Perpignan?
