Toulon call on Connolly

Former Wallabies coach John Connolly has replaced Jean-Jacques Crenca as forwards coach of Top 14 battlers Toulon.

The big-spending French club will welcome Connolly to town on Monday. Toulon recently went down 42-20 to Montauban, a scoreline that flattered Toulon given they scored three late tries.

Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal believes the appointment could provide the solution to the club’s problems. Toulon currently sit at 12th on the Top 14 table.
