TO TRANSFER. TOP 14. Who will replace Tolofua in Toulouse? Sensitive souls refrain, there is heavy!

TO TRANSFER. TOP 14. Selevasio Tolofua (Toulouse) on the way to ToulonThe transfer has not been officially announced by Toulon or Toulouse. But according to various media, Selevasio Tolofua will leave the pink city for La Rade at the end of the season. A three-year contract would await the international third line on the RCT side. After seven years in Toulouse and more than 90 matches played in the Top 14, Selevasio has chosen to face a new challenge. He certainly felt it was time to look elsewhere to develop his career and his game, but in recent years he had become an important fixture at Stade Toulousain. with more and more playing time. Picking up more and more holdings. But the competition in Seven Coins is stiff along with the other Tricolors, Jelonch, and Cros. We can also think that the arrival of players like Alexandre Roumat will have an impact on his playing time, not to mention the appearance of young talents like Théo Ntamack. TOP 14. Who would have bet on a 4-star performance from these 5 recruits?TOP 14. Who would have bet on a 4-star performance from these 5 recruits?Tolofua’s departure will undoubtedly be a loss for Toulouse. Especially since he may not be the only one to jump ship from Toulouse at the end of the season. Alban Placines’ contract ends in 2023, as does Springbok Rynhardt Elstadt’s. Will they spread? The latter will turn 33 in a few weeks and we can imagine that the Stadium will want to use a younger and more talented element to reinforce its third line. And it won’t be Sam Simmonds, recruited by Montpellier after Mercer’s departure in England. Across the Channel, other well-known players have been linked several times to French clubs. This was particularly the case for South African Daniel Du Preez, tracked down by Bordeaux. We know that Billy Vunipola does not leave the Top 14 formations indifferent. He will soon be 30 years old and could do a lot of damage in France. Fijian Albert Tuisue could also be on the market at the end of the season. TO TRANSFER.

The Vunipola brothers, next Top 14 headliners?But according to some rumours, Toulouse would have another Blues in their sights who would come to swell their tricolor contingent, already well supplied with French internationals. On Pau’s side, a player well known to the fans could be available in 2023: Jordan Joseph. Arrived on loan to the Section last year, he continued the adventure in Béarn this season. Will you return to Plessis-Robinson at the end of the year? In fact, he still has a contract with Racing 92. However, he seems to be flourishing in Pau and we can imagine that he will have discussions between the different parties about his future. A possible termination of the contract cannot be ruled out. Nothing says that the case will be between the former U20 world champion and Stade Toulousain. So that the Haut-Garonne club can explore other avenues.VIDEO.  rugby championship  Ardie Savea proves once again that he is the best 8 in the worldVIDEO. rugby championship Ardie Savea proves once again that he is the best 8 in the worldPushing the cap far away, one could imagine that the All Black Ardie Savea is seduced by an adventure in France. He would not be the first New Zealander to play for Toulouse. And he probably won’t be the last while his partner in the selection Nepo Laulala is announced in the pink city after the World Cup. The Hurricanes player’s problem is that he has been with his federation for four years. Therefore, he is linked with the NZRU until the end of 2025. But only until December 2023 with the Super Rugby franchise. However, as part of the contract, Savea will have the option to play abroad for a period of six months during the 2024 season. Would an All Black freelancer be satisfactory for Toulouse? We imagine not, as Europe’s most successful club likes to prepare for its future. But we also know its potential for attraction. Could he be strong enough to attract Savea or a world-class player like Josh Van der Flier? The Irishman expanded last February with the federation of him and Leinster. But we do not know the duration of the new contract. And his age, 30 years old in 2023, could also be a brake. But imagine a second Van der Flier in Toulouse?CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.
