Visa problems for Rossouw
Former Springbok forward Danie Rossouw's arrival at Top 14 leaders Toulon has been delayed by visa problems.
According to local newspaper Var Matin, Rossouw was expected to fly in directly from Japan, where he has finished the season with Suntory Sungoliath, and arrive on the French coast on February 15.
But visa regulations mean he is obliged to travel via South Africa, delaying his debut for the French club which coach Bernard Laporte had hoped would be this weekend against defending champions Toulouse.
The 34-cap World Cup winner has signed a deal until June 2014 with Toulon.
