Next up: Hayman & Wilkinson

Former New Zealand prop Carl Hayman has been named captain of Toulon following the retirement of Jonny Wilkinson.

Hayman joined the current French and European champions in 2010 from Newcastle Falcons.

Supported by fellow forwards Chris Masoe and Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe, the former Highlanders prop has been awarded the captaincy by head coach Bernard Laporte.

Hayman won 45 caps for the All Blacks between 2001-2007 while spending eight years with the Highlanders before making the move to England. He has consistently been regarded as one of the world's premier props.

Wilkinson retired at the end of last season at the age of 36.
