Botha: Heading to France
Toulon have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign World Cup-winning lock Bakkies Botha.
The Springbok will now head to the Top 14 outfit after the World Cup in New Zealand, with Botha having agreed a three-year deal.
Botha, 32, has won 72 caps and been a key figure in the Bulls pack - winning Super Rugby and Currie Cup titles.
However he will now team up with the likes of Matt Giteau, Jonny Wilkinson, George Smith and Juan Martin Fernandez-Lobbe at Toulon.
