Taufete’e claimed the record in only his 21st international appearance.Taufete’e’s achievement was recognised by World Rugby who shortlisted him for their Men’s 15s Player of the Year last year.Taufete’e, a convert from American Football, made his international debut in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and played in all four of United States’ four group matches in last year’s tournament in Japan.ADVERTISEMENTHaving become an integral and popular member of the squad at Sixways, Taufete’e will join Lyon with the club’s best wishes.“Joe has been an integral part of Warriors for some years and the contribution he has made is greatly valued and appreciated,” said Warriors’ Director of Rugby Alan Solomons.“Joe is not only a first-class rugby player, but an outstanding bloke and team man, who will always be welcome here at Sixways. From a personal point of view, it has been a pleasure to work with Joe. We wish him all the best in his new venture.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.
