12:22 pm on 1 May 2013

The high spending French rugby club Toulon has signed the Springbok winger Bryan Habana for the next two seasons.

The announcement follows the news last week that the Wallaby wing Drew Mitchell will also join Toulon.

Toulon, who are backed by president Mourad Boudjellal's personal money, have been relying on foreign players to mount their Top 14 and European Cup challenge.

Only four French players featured in the Toulon team who beat Saracens 24-12 in the Heineken Cup semi-finals at the weekend.

Toulon, second in the Top 14, will play the final against pacesetters Clermont Auvergne on May 18th in Dublin.
