Smith, Burden to stay at Toulon?
- 20 Jan 2014
Former Springbok loose forward Juan Smith and former Sharks hooker Craig Burden are likely to stay at Toulon.
La Provence reports that Burden, who was brought to Toulon as a medical joker, will be offered a contract extention, along with 2007 World Cup-winning Smith.
Both Burden and Smith have been in good form for the star-studded French side, and have often found themselves in the starting line-up.
Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal recently discussed how he has lifted Toulon from a struggling second division side into a Top 14 powerhouse by bringing in international talent such as former England flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson and Australian playmaker Matt Giteau.
