Ayumu Goromaru confirms Toulon move

Japanese International star Ayumu Goromaru has confirmed that his time in Super Rugby has come to an end by announcing that he has signed for French Club Toulon.

Goromaru shot to fame in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and was quickly signed up by the Reds for the 2016 Super Rugby season possibly with an option for 2017.

The Japanese fullback struggled for game time with the Reds and was only able to hold on to a starting place whilst Karmichael Hunt was injured and on the sidelines.

Speaking on his blog Goromaru said that his next big challenge was to recover from the injury before he can join Toulon in August.

Goromaru’s Japanese club Yamaha Jubilo have also announced that  his contract has been terminated and he will not be returning to Japan to play Top League rugby at the end of the year.
