Flying the flag

After their European Cup glory, Toulon's South African contingent proudly posed with the national flag in Cardiff.

Lock Bakkies Botha posted this picture of himself and team-mates Bryan Habana (wing), Juan Smith (flank), Danie Rossouw (lock), Craig Burden (hooker), Michael Claassens (scrumhalf) and Joe van Niekerk (loose forward), with the South Afican flag and the European Cup. 

'Last week of the season, lets put hard work in for our supporters; loved ones and people in South-Africa. Blessings,' tweeted Botha.

Veteran Bulls and Bok lock Victor Matfield also took to social media to congratulate his friends: 'Allez toulon allez Toulon. Great Bakke, Danna en Juan', he tweeted. And later added 'Great @BryanHabana, @DannaRossouw, @BakkiesBotha4. Now for that top 14 trophy then you've won everything in rugby. Allez Toulon'.

Toulon will play their last game of the season when they face Rory Kockott's Castres in the Top 14 final on 31 May.
