Will Folau sign for Toulon ?

Post by sapajo » Mon Jul 21, 2014 12:49 pm

Seems Toulon may be prepared to dig seriously deep (1.7 million euros)to sign up Israel Folau?

http://www.parcequetoulon.com/actualite ... folau.html

Salient translation is:

According to the Australian commentator Matty Johns, the Australian outback have received an offer of 1.7 million Euros from Toulon

"The Champion of France and Europe are about to offer 2.5 million Dollars (Australian) per season Folau"
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity

Haven't they just signed up Halfpenny and O'Connor for the next couple of years. O'Connor will probably play 10 but even so when you add Armitage they don't need full backs. They have great options there and are hardly bereft on the wings. If anything you thought they might look at a young centre to act as understudy to Giteau, Basteraud and Mermoz.

I smell agent talk to wrangle a panicked ARU big money deal ahead of the RWC.

I thought O'Connor was a short term contract as he wants/needs to be back in Aus to get in WC squad!

Very unlikely before the WC but afterwards who knows? Mr Boudjellal isn't exactly the king of shrewd transfers and Folau has proved himself extremely flighty already.

They get Folau and we might as well all go home… :smt009 Already proving what a great player he is and has only been in union for a year.

O'Connor has signed with the reds for the next super rugby season.

Reckon they will go after Genia as well I just don't see bath signing him could well be wrong though.
