Toulon - European champions Toulon will sign Australian pair Lachie Turner and Mitchell Inman as cover for absent international stars during the World Cup, the club said on Thursday.

Wing Turner, 28, will join from the Reds while centre Inman, 26, is arriving from the Rebels.

They underwent medicals on Thursday morning and will be available for Toulon until the club welcomes back its host of star players from international duty during the World Cup.

Their signings take to five the number of World Cup "jokers" signed by the 2014 French champions, alongside English prop Matt Stevens, Fiji wing Sireli Bobo and versatile back Julien Caminati.

Turner has played for the Wallabies 15 times.
