Savea returns following 'DNA' blast

Savea returns following 'DNA' blast

Former All Blacks and Hurricanes winger Julian Savea returns to the Toulon starting line up following a month's long absence.

Savea has been missing from the Toulon squad for more than a month after club president Mourad Boudjellal froze him out following a series of underwhelming displays.

His last appearance was against Top 14 strugglers Agen on February 16, after which Boudjellal said he wanted to give a player nicknamed 'The Bus' a DNA test to see if he was who he claimed he was.


Boudjellal said "he was free and no longer welcome at Toulon" following the 19-10 loss, but he will start at centre for his side's fixture at Lyon on Saturday.


Savea starts at inside centre against Lyon this weekend in the Top 14.
