Looks like they have bought him out of his contract at WP/Stormers.
I have to say I find Toulon very irratating.
I think it was Toulon CEO who last year stated that Bakkies Botha was not going to be released to play for the Springboks. He was quoted as saying" Why would we sign foreign players if they are going to play internationals for their counties, instead of playing club rugby for us?
A few days later he retracted the statement, as IRB laws state that clubs have to release players regardless of what contract they have.
