Smith: Toulon move

Sky Bet

Australia international flanker George Smith will be making the move to France next season to play for Top 14 side Toulon.

The 29-year-old is Australia's most-capped forward and the fifth most-capped player in international rugby union with 110 appearances to his name.

After making 120 Super Rugby appearances for the ACT Brumbies, in which he scored 21 tries, Smith announced in February that he would be leaving to move to Europe.

Having also announced his international retirement, the two-time World Cup veteran now joins an influx of new signings at the Top 14 club.

Toulon have been busily recruiting for the new season, with Smith joining a pack already bolstered by Kiwi prop Carl Hayman, Bourgoin front-row duo Jean-Philippe Genevois and Karena Wihongi and Sale second-rower Dean Schofield.

In the backs, Albi's Benjamin Lapeyre and England wing Paul Sackey have also joined the ambitious club.
