Stephen Brett for Bayonne

Joining Lyon: Stephen Brett

Following the final round of the Top 14 regular season Bayonne have confirmed the departure of nine players, including Neemia Tialata.

The former All Black prop is expected to join Toulouse while fellow Kiwi Stephen Brett is heading to Lyon, where the former Crusaders fly-half will hope to help LOU stay up having won promotion as ProD2 champions.

Brett has been replaced by another New Zealander, Blair Stewart from Grenoble.

Loose forward Julien Puricelli is also going to Lyon but the future of Tongan centre Manu Ahotaeiloa is not clear.

Props Vitolio Manukula and Pierre-Philippe Lafond, hooker Grégory Arganese, loose forward Guillaume Bernad and centre Sam Gerber have also played their last games for the Basque club.
