Date published: February 17 2017

Toulon have announced the signing of Jaguares and Argentina number eight Facundo Isa on a two-year contract.

Isa, who shone at Super Rugby level and in the Test arena in 2016, will join the Top 14 heavyweights at the end of the Jaguares’ 2017 Super Rugby campaign.

He is no stranger to Toulon as he played one match for them during the 2013/14 season before returning to Argentina.

The 23-year-old, who has played in 25 Tests for los Pumas, is Toulon’s sixth new signing for the 2017/18 season and joins fellow back row Raphael Lakafia, wings Chris Ashton and Filipo Nakosi, centre Semi Radradra and full-back Hugo Bonneval.
