Pilou Pilou

News from across the Channel where, in a somewhat surprising move, reasonably well-heeled owner of RC Toulonnais, Mourad Boudjellal, is set to announce that his club will now sign every player currently plying their trade in northern hemisphere rugby.

Toulon have already confirmed that they will next season add the likes of Gethin Jenkins, Delon & Guy Armitage, Andrew Sheridan, Chris Masoe, Maxime Mermoz and Frederic Michalak to their collection of galacticos at the Stade Mayol.

The constant announcements have, however, put a strain on the club’s resources.
“It’s easier this way,” a club spokesman told us. “If a player reaches the end of his contract at his club, whoever he is, I think it’s safe to assume that we’ll sign him.

“Have you any idea how much time and effort I have to put in to announcing new signings? Sometimes I even have to interrupt my lunch.

“The salary cap? Sorry I don’t understand the question.”
In other news, out-of-contract former England centre Mike Tindall is still searching for a club for next season.

Toulon will win something bigeventually...with that much money it's a given.

Total Flanker...What are your thoughts on David Campese offering his services for England? I never thought I would see the day! Personally I think it would feel slightly dirty!

I have written about it on my dumptackle blog if you haven't heard the news.
