Toulon – it’s on!

The Sharks will face French champions RC Toulon in an exhibition match in February next year, after the club’s enigmatic owner, Mourad Boudjellal accepted John Smit’s Twitter challenge.

Taking a bit of a punt last week, Smit issued the challenge last week, prompting some anxious moments as Toulon player Drew Mitchell initially rebuffed the advance, shooting Smit down in style by pointing out that Toulon already had their hands full with playing the actual Super Rugby champions, the Waratahs.

Mitchell’s boss, though, appeared not to share his player’s view and rose to the bait just as Smit (seemingly) knew he would. Claiming that the Sharks “don’t scare him” and he’d gladly play them anywhere at any time, the date has been set for 5 February 2015 at the Stade Mayol in Toulon.

With Saracens having opted to play against the Bulls next year, rather than reprising the successful 2014 outing against the Sharks, Smit has acted quickly to plug the gap and ensure a quality Northern hit-out for his men ahead of Super Rugby.
