Former Leinster hero Rocky Elsom on the verge of signing for Toulon

Leinster’s 2009 Heineken Cup hero, Rocky Elsom, is undergoing a medical at Toulon today with a view to signing for this season's tournament quarter-finalists.

The former Australia captain who was Man of the Match in Leinster Rugby's 2009 Heineken Cup final victory over Leicester Tigers at Murrayfield, could sign as cover before a permanent deal is penned. "If the medical is successful, then the player will sign with Toulon,'' said a club statement.

Elsom, a veteran of 75 internationals between 2005 and 2011, has suffered a series of groin injuries and also undergone shoulder surgery. His last club action came with New South Wales Waratahs in Super Rugby and in Japan with Kobelco Steelers.

The 30-year-old has been lined up to replace Stephane Munoz who has been out of action with a fractured orbital lobe since January.

Toulon play their Heineken Cup quarter-final against Leicester Tigers at Stade Mayol on Sunday,  April 7.
