Neemia Tialata: On the move?

According to reports in the French press, former All Black prop Neemia Tialata may be heading to Toulouse from Top 14 rivals Bayonne.

Short on tighthead stocks, Toulouse are believed to be searching for a replacement for Yohan Montès, who is heading to Castres.

Midi Olympique reports that the four-time European champions are eager to sign 31-year-old Tialata, who earned 43 caps for New Zealand.

According to RMC radio, Tialata visited Toulouse headquarters on Thursday, where he signed a three-year deal.

Tialata joined Bayonne in 2011 but the Basque club are threatened with relegation.
