Steve Meehan has officially arrived at Toulon as he replaces Pierre Mignoni as their backs coach for next season.

The former Bath, Stade Français, Reds and Western Force coach has signed a deal for the next two seasons with the triple European champions.

He will link up with Bernard Laporte and future head coach Diego Dominguez, and admits he's been impressed by the Italian, who will take on the top job at the start of 2016.

"What attracted me to Toulon? It's a magnificent project," said Meehan.

"Toulon is a club with a vision which works well. That was the most important thing for me. It wasn't a difficult decision. Diego's passion is enormous. He's very competitive."
