Toulouse bring in RWC jokers

Date published: July 25 2015

Toulouse have reinforced their squad with the addition of two World Cup jokers in the back row as they prepare for the Top 14 season.

Argentina back row Tomas Leonardi has been confirmed at the club, while former Biarritz flanker Tala Gray will also join on a short-term deal.

Leonardi had been linked to a move earlier this week, and arrives from Edinburgh where he has spent the last two seasons. He has won 18 caps for his country, mainly playing at number eight.

Joining him will be Gray, who will link up with former teammate Imanol Harinordoquy in the Toulouse back row.

Gray made his name in France during a two-year spell at Biarritz, during which time he won the Challenge Cup. In 2014 he returned to Australia to play for the Waratahs where he has spent the last two seasons.
