Last summer, Italy Sergio Parisse made it clear that he was going to play one last season of his career before hanging up his boots in June 2022.
However, reports in France suggest the number 8 is now set to sign a one-year extension with Toulon.
According to information from RMC Sport , the 36-year-old is in full negotiation with the clubs hierarchy to sign one more year as a player while also putting a foot in the staff.

The flanker, who was capped 83 times over an 11-year Wallabies career, opted against returning to his Japanese Top League club, the Panasonic Wild Knights, for another season in 2020. Already well-known for his activism on social justice and environmental issues, the 32-year-old will now dedicate his time to conservation.
Parisse said: “Nobody tested me physically as much as Pocock. He was physically the perfect rugby player.”
