Muller joins frog fraternity

Former World Cup Springbok Jorrie Muller will continue his rugby career in France with second division club Lyon.

After missing almost the entire season because of injury, the 25 year old is set to join the Pro D2 side, who are currently sitting at third spot in the league and are strong contenders for promotion to the Top 14 next season.

Muller represented South Africa six times, and played outside centre at the 2003 World Cup in Australia. Domestically, he has played 42 times for the Lions in the Absa Currie Cup, and 31 times in the Vodacom Super 14, scoring 26 tries in all.

Muller is just one amongst the scores of South Africans heading to the popular playing fields of France. A host of other internationals like former All Black captain Tana Umaga (Toulon) will also play out their careers in the country.
