To France: CJ van der Linde

Former South Africa prop CJ van der Linde has joined French and European champions Toulon, according to reports in France.

Midi Olympique have reported that van der Linde has joined Toulon on a two-year contract.

The 33-year-old last turned out for London Irish in the Aviva Premiership last season, but failed to finish a single match during a disastrous injury-ridden spell with the Exiles.

Van der Linde, who has 75 caps for the Springboks and was last capped in 2012, will be in good company in the south of France.

Bryan Habana, Michael Claassens, Bakkies Botha, Craig Burden, Juan Smith also make up Toulon's South African contingent for the coming season.
