Toulon’s Saffas conquer Europe

SA Rugby magazine celebrates the success of Toulon's South African contingent in its new issue, on sale today.

Bryan Habana, Bakkies Botha, Danie Rossouw, Juan Smith, Craig Burden and Michael Claassens all played important roles in the French club's European Cup and Top 14 triumphs, with the injured Joe van Niekerk supporting them from the stands.

In the new issue:
