It has officially been confirmed that Bryan Habana penned the deal with the French side in the last few days.
This comes after Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal confirmed last month that the Top 14 leaders were in hot pursuit of the Springbok flyer. Boudjellal said at the time the chances of Habana joining Toulon were “closer to 10 than zero.”
At this stage it’s unsure exactly how long Habana, 29, will play in France, nor whether he will be available for the Springboks in June.
He was named SA Player of the Year for a third time. Habana also won the Try of the Year award at last year’s IRB awards, for his outstanding solo effort against the All Blacks in the Rugby Championship in Dunedin.
