Toulouse secure World Cup joker

Date published: July 21 2015

Toulouse appear to have signed Argentinian forward Tomás Leonardi to fill gaps in their squad during the Rugby World Cup.

The 28-year-old reportedly passed his medical with the Top 14 giants on Monday.

Able to play across the back row, Leonardi will cover the losses of Thierry Dusautoir and potentially Louis Picamoles to the France squad for the tournament, with Joe Tekori also set to be away with Samoa.

Leonardi has played for the Kings in Super Rugby and most recently turned out for Scottish side Edinburgh.

The Argentina international has won 18 caps for his country, the last of which came in 2013 against Georgia.
