Toulon have strengthened their squad by signing former Blue Bulls and Springboks utility forward Danie Rossouw.

 

 

According to reports in the French media Toulon's billionaire owner Mourad Boudjellal has confirmed that Rossouw, who can play at lock or on the flank, has signed a deal with the Top 14 club that will keep him in France until June 2014.

 

Rossouw who played the last of his 63 Tests for South Africa at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand, is currently playing for the Suntory Sungoliaths in Japan.

 

It is reported that the presence of Rossouw's former Springboks and Bulls team-mate Bakkies Botha at Toulon helped convince him to make the move and he is set to join Toulon in February.

 

Botha expressed his delight on Rossouw's impending move on Twitter.

 

"I'm happy my life time friend Danie Rossouw is joining me next year at club RCT in France," he tweeted.
