In his interview, Heyneke Meyer refused to blame the ref after the Boks' loss.

Cape Town - Another South African is set to ply his trade at French Top 14 club Toulon, with Sharks hooker Craig Burden reportedly set to leave Durban.

According to the Beeld website, Burden will shortly leave for France where he will play for Toulon on a trial basis with the aim of making his stay permanent.

With Bismarck du Plessis at the Springboks, Monde Hadebe and Kyle Cooper are now expected to do duty at hooker for the Sharks for the remainder of the Currie Cup season.

Burden will join fellow South Africans Bryan Habana, Danie Rossouw, Joe van Niekerk, Bakkies Botha, Juan Smith and Michael Claassens at the big-spending French club.
