Next move: James O'Connor

James O'Connor has been reportedly spotted meeting with Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal, 24 hours after his London Irish debut.

The 23-year-old Australian started at full-back for the Exiles in the 14-19 loss to Northampton Saints at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday.

O'Connor was photographed at Toulon's Mayol shopping centre on Monday and met with Boudjellal and director of recruitment Laurent Emmanuelli regarding a move for next season, according to Varmatin.

O'Connor is only on a contract with Irish until the end of the Aviva Premiership season, after being released by the Australian Rugby Union earlier this year.

With former Wallabies Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell already playing at the Stade Felix Mayol, the Heineken Cup champions may well become O'Connor's next destination following his stint with the Exiles.
