Toulon is said to be edging closer to securing the services of two prominent English rugby stars, as per reports from French media sources.
Kyle Sinckler and Lewis Ludlam, hailing from Bristol Bears and Northampton Saints, respectively, are rumored to have made a visit to the esteemed training facilities of the Campus Rugby Club Toulonnais in the port city during a break in the recent Rugby World Cup while they were on England national team duty.
This development occurs against the backdrop of the ongoing financial challenges faced by numerous Gallagher Premiership clubs, which have encountered persistent difficulties in retaining their marquee players.
Midi Olympique, a reputable French rugby publication, has reported sightings of Sinckler and Ludlam in Toulon during the tournament.
It is believed that they capitalized on a brief respite in their schedules to explore Toulon’s state-of-the-art facilities, igniting speculation about the possibility of their future involvement with the prestigious French Top 14 club.
