Shaw joins Toulon

ENGLAND team-mates Jonny Wilkinson and Simon Shaw will be reunited at Toulon after the latter ended speculation surrounding his future by signing for the French Top 14 club yesterday.

Shaw, 38, angered Wasps, where he spent 13 seasons, last week by reneging on a deal he agreed before last month’s World Cup.

Toulon, who also completed the signing of experienced Australian back Matt Giteau yesterday, unveiled Shaw as cover for current injuries, describing him as a ‘medical joker’.
