Mourad Boudjellal - "Serious"
Possibly the most bizarre story of the week is the apparent approach by RC Toulon to join the English Premiership.

Mourad Boudjellal has confirmed he has written to Premiership Rugby to express his interest and is said to be "serious".

"I wrote for a contact," he said. "If this is not possible the next season, maybe the one after that. It would be a huge added value. And I'm serious in my approach.

"No, it's not just a publicity stunt to apply pressure to the Top 14. I'm serious.

"No, it's not just a contrived plan to get Steffon Armitage into the England squad. I'm serious.

"And no, I'm not as mad as a box of frogs (no pun intended).

"Did I mention I'm serious?"
