O’Connell Completes Toulon Move

Paul O’Connell has completed his move to Toulon. The Ireland captain agreed a two-year deal with the three-time European Champions ahead of last night’s deadline for Top14 clubs to register players for next season. O’Connell will now link-up with the star-studded French club after the end of Ireland’s campaign at the Rugby World Cup. The Ireland Under-20s have been beaten 22-12 by their Welsh counterparts in the 5th place play-off semi-final at the World Under-20 Championship in Italy. Ireland will now have to face Scotland in a 7th place play-off on Saturday.
