Former Wallaby Rocky Elsom will have a medical at Toulon on Monday ahead of signing for the Top 14 side despite being dogged by recent injury issues.

The back-row forward could sign as cover before a permanent deal is penned at Stade Felix Mayol.

"If the medical is successful, then the player will sign with Toulon," said a club statement.

Elsom, a veteran of 75 internationals between 2005 and 2011, has suffered a series of groin injuries and also undergone shoulder surgery.

His last club action came with the Warathas in Super Rugby and in Japan with Kobelco Steelers.

30-year-old Elsom has been lined up to replace Stephane Munoz who has been out of action with a fractured orbital lobe since January.

The Australian has played in Europe before, winning the Heineken Cup with Leinster in 2009.
