Williams to link with former foe at Toulon

5:57 am on 13 July 2013

The former All Blacks lock Ali Williams is looking forward to linking up with one of his fiercest on-field rivals when he joins the French club Toulon.

Williams confirmed reports he will join the French powerhouse next season and hinted the deal was worth more than a million dollars.

He will join his former All Blacks team-mate Carl Hayman at the club, but says he's especially looking forward to playing alongside the former Springboks lock Bakkies Botha.
