Toulouse sign Kings prop
- 01 Sep 2013
Schalk Ferreira will join French club Toulouse as an injury replacement.
Toulouse suffered a spate of injuries in the 40-3 thrashing of Bayonne last weekend.
Vasil Kakovin ruptured the cruciate ligaments in his right knee, fellow prop Antoine Guillamon fractured a bone in his right hand, and hooker Jaba Bregvadze is also out for a long time with a triple fracture of the mastoid (bony prominence located behind the ear).
'They will be arriving on Monday,' Toulouse's head of recruitment Jean-Michel Rancoule told AFP, referring to Ferreira and South African youngster Martens van den Heever, who will join the youth academy.
