Toulon snap up Tuilagi

Toulon have completed the signing of veteran Samoa international wing Alesana Tuilagi as a medical joker, according to Midi Olimpique.


The former Leicester Tigers and Newcastle Falcons star, who turns 36 in February, arrives following the four-month lay-off Vincent Clerc sustained.

Clerc will be out for up to five months after rupturing his left Achilles tendon.

Tuilagi has won 38 caps for his country, scoring 18 tries in the process.
