Ngatai will join Leinster at the end of the season

Will it extend or not? The question has been on the table for many weeks now, but requiem is now being said in Charlie Ngatay’s file. His signing of a new one-season contract with LOU, where he had been playing since the summer of 2018 and played 82 matches for him, was what Rhone Club had hoped for. However, this will not happen in the end. While the New Zealand international (selected against Samoa in 2015) has verbally agreed with Lyon to extend his adventure on the side of Matmute Stadium in Guerlain, he has finally changed his plans and will cross the Channel at the end of the season to put his bags in Dublin.

The player’s decision, which the leaders of the local unit considered “surprising”, will cause a lot of regret to the Rhone club, which will represent him until the end of the season. The case ends when the 31-year-old New Zealander cannot help with his training on the ground. Charlie Ngatay, who was the victim just a month ago of breaking his tibia during his first 14 match against Biarritz, is expected to return at the end of April. He’s played sixteen games this season: thirteen in the Top 14, where he’s always been established and scored two attempts, and three more in the Challenge Cup. According to local daily Le Progrès, Ngatai traveled to the Irish capital on Thursday to sign his new contract with Leinster, where he will earn around €500,000 per season.
