Ma'a Nonu returns to Toulon

After two years away from the club, former All Black centre Ma'a Nonu has agreed to rejoin the club, the French Top 14 side announced on Saturday.

In a statement on their website, the club said they contacted the 38-year-old Nonu about a return following injuries to Anthony Belleau and Julien Heriteau.

"Rugby Club Toulonnais is delighted with Ma’a Nonu's return to Toulon and hopes to share a very good 2020-2021 season with him," read the statement.

The two time World Cup winner represented New Zealand 104 time.

He spent three years at Toulon before returning to New Zealand last year where he played for the Blues in Super Rugby.

After the Super Rugby campaign the former All Black signed for Major League Rugby side San Diego Legion in the United States of America.

The club confirmed that the 38-year-old will join the club shortly before their Challenge Cup semi-final against Leicester Tigers and he is expected in Toulon in the next few days and will participate in training as soon as he has passed a medical.

Toulon are back in action in the Top 14 next Sunday where they take on Toulouse who lost their Champions Cup semi-final to Exeter Chiefs.
