Toulon - Toulon have signed giant Samoan wing Alesana Tuilagi to cover for injured fellow veteran Vincent Clerc.
Clerc will be out for up to five months after rupturing his left Achilles tendon.
The 67-time capped France player remains the top scorer in the
European Cup competition with 36 tries, although Chris Ashton has moved
to within two of that mark after scoring a brace in Saracens' 22-22 draw
with Scarlets on the weekend.
The 35-year-old Tuilagi, one of six rugby-playing brothers including
England international Manu and an integral part of the Leicester team
that won the English Premiership in 2007, 2009 and 2010, also previously
played for Newcastle Falcons and Japanese club Shining Arcs de Chiba.
