Michalak agrees to Toulon deal

Reports in the European press suggest that Frederic Michalak will join RC Toulon for a three year stint on completion of his Super Rugby commitments in Durban.

Although it is not surprising that Michalak has decided to leave the Sharks – he has previously intimated that he feels a return to France would be in his best interests if he hopes to feature in new national coach Philippe Saint-Andre’s plans – most pundits would have assumed that his old stomping ground, Toulouse, would have been the more likely destination. Heading to the Riviera will put him on a direct collision course with the current flyhalf incumbent in the red and black, one Johnny Wilkinson.

“Nothing has been signed but there is a verbal agreement on a contract for three years,” confirmed RCT president Mourad Boudjellal, indicating that while the papers are reporting this one as a “done deal”, it may also be nothing more than a ploy to secure a better deal with Toulouse, or perhaps even another club altogether.

One thing is for sure, though – the Sharks will be without Fred Michalak’s services when next year’s European season kicks off.
