Danie Rossouw joins Toulon

2012-10-08 17:42

Toulon - South African loose forward Danie Rossouw has signed for French Top 14 club Toulon, club president Mourad Boudjellal said on Monday.

Rossouw agreed a deal until June 2014 and will join his new club next February after the end of the Japanese championships where he is currently playing with Suntory Sungoliath.

The 34-year-old former Bulls stalwart joins compatriots Bakkies Botha and Joe van Niekerk in the southwestern French side who are currently leading the Top 14.

Rossouw's last Test for the Springboks was their 11-9 World Cup quarter-final defeat to Australia in Wellington, New Zealand last year.

    Danie was SBW before SBW was SBW. The offload, the behind the back pass, the around the defender pass, the break of the line with the try scoring offload. What a man

      Go well Danie, you are one of the legends of the games already.

      Offloads? Behind the back passes? Try-scoring offloads? I only saw him run into the defender in front of him, go to ground and lose the ball.

      Must say, Chris I find the odd laugh in other people's posts or at least something to think about or enjoy the trolling of others, but your posts are neither funny nor witty. Are you an accountant?

      To me, he is the most underrated Bok we ever had. The man was a machine, God bless him.

    His departure weakened the Bulls team by 20%.

    Classic hard man- played hard but fair. And just got on with the job despite spending a lot of time on the bench for the Bulls and the Boks. We are missing guys like him in SA at the moment. Legend and I hope he earns a big retirement package.

    Dom bokser uitkyk,ai al die bulle lyk so.Seker iets in die water in Pretoria.

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Idioot.

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-10-08 19:24

      Somtyds moet 'n mens maar net stilbly en glimlag. As jy Rossouw se talent op die water afskryf, dan is dit tyd dat ons WP mense maar van PTA se water moet kry (of alternatiewelik iets van rugby leer).
