TRANSFER. ITEM 14. Who will replace Tolofua in Toulouse? Sensitive souls do without, it will be difficult!

TRANSFER. TOP 14. Selevasio Tolofua (Toulouse) on the way to ToulonNeither Toulon nor Toulouse officially announced the transfer. However, according to multiple media outlets, Selevasio Tolofua will leave the pink city for La Rade at the end of the season. A three-year contract would await the third international line alongside the RCT. After seven years at Toulouse and more than 90 games in the top 14, Selevasio has decided to take on a new challenge. He no doubt felt it was time to look elsewhere to further develop his career and game, but in recent years he had become a vital element at the Stade Toulousain with more playing time. Takes more and more terms. But the competition at the Seven Coins is tough alongside the other Tricolores, Jelonch and Cros. We can also expect the arrival of players like Alexandre Roumat to impact his playing time, not to mention the emergence of young talent like Théo Ntamack. ITEM 14. Who would have bet on a 4 star performance from these 5 recruits?ITEM 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 leave the Toulouse ship at the end of the season. Alban Placines’ contract expires in 2023, as does Springbok Rynhardt Elstadt’s. Will they be renewed? The latter will turn 33 in a few weeks and we can imagine that the stadium would want to turn to a younger and talented element to strengthen 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 to French clubs on several occasions. This was notably the case of South African Daniel Du Preez, who was being pursued by Bordeaux. We know that Billy Vunipola does not leave indifferent the top 14 formations. He will soon be 30 years old and could cause a lot of damage in France. Fijian Albert Tuisue could also come onto the market at the end of the season. TRANSFER.  The Vunipola brothers, the next Top 14 headliners?TRANSFER. The Vunipola brothers, the next Top 14 headliners?But some rumor has it that Toulouse are eyeing another Blues who will add to their tricolor squad, which is already well stocked with France internationals. On the Pau side, a player well known to the fans could be available in 2023: Jordan Joseph. Joined the section on loan last year and continued the adventure at Béarn this season. Will he return to Plessis-Robinson at the end of the year? He is actually still under contract with Racing 92. Nonetheless, he seems to be thriving in Pau and we can imagine he’ll be in talks between the various parties about his future. A possible repurchase of the contract cannot be ruled out. Nothing says the case will be between the former U20 world champions and Stade Toulousain. So that the Haut-Garonne Club can go different ways.VIDEO.  Rugby Championship.  Ardie Savea proves once again that he is in the top 8 in the worldVIDEO. Rugby Championship. Ardie Savea proves once again that he is in the top 8 in the worldPushing the cap very far, one could imagine the All Black Ardie Savea being seduced on an adventure in France. He wouldn’t be the first New Zealander to play for Toulouse. And probably last but not least his teammate in the selection Nepo Laulala is popular in the pink city after the World Cup. The problem with the Hurricanes player is that he got a four-year extension with his federation. It is therefore linked to the NZRU until the end of 2025. But only until December 2023 with the Super Rugby franchise. However, as part of the deal, Savea will be given the option to play abroad for a period of six months in the 2024 season. Would an All Black Freelancer be satisfactory for Toulouse? We can’t imagine that, because the most successful club in Europe 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 extended with his association and Leinster last February. But we don’t know the term 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 CUP.  Josh Van der Flier, that third shadowline who became the best number 7 in the worldCHAMPIONS CUP.
