The top 5 most expensive rugby transfers of all time after Cheslin Kolbe move

Cheslin Kolbe confirms a record-breaking £1.5m move to Toulon from Toulouse as Springbok signs seven-figure deal.

Toulon have reportedly shelled out €1.8million (£1.5m) to sign Kolbe, who still had two years remaining on his previous deal.

“This is a new chapter in my career that I am approaching with great passion and commitment,” Kolbe, a 2019 World Cup winner, was quoted as saying in a club statement.
