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.
