French Top 14 side Toulon have signed Argentina wing Ramiro Moyano until the end of the season.
The French giants on Wednesday confirmed the acquisition of Moyano, with the elusive wing set to join Argentina teammate Facundo Isa – who missed out on selection for the World Cup – at the club. Moyano featured just once for Los Pumas at the tournament in Japan, in the 23-21 defeat by France.
‘Arriving today, he will have all his medicals and will join the Red and Black squad as soon as his registration is confirmed by the National Rugby League,’ Toulon said in a statement on their website.
The 29-year-old has scored 15 tries in 35 Tests and was a key member of the Jaguares side that reached the final of this year’s Vodacom Super Rugby competition, losing 19-3 to eventual champions the Crusaders.
Moyano joins World Cup-winning lock Eben Etzebeth as another big-name recruit for the star-studded French side.
