Tindall ready for France in mass exodus

FORMER England captain Mike Tindall looks set to move to France after Gloucester confirmed he is to leave the club at the end of the season.

Following Tindall out of Kingsholm in thr summer are Eliota Fuimano-Sapulo, Luke Narraway, Alasdair Strokosch, Rory Lawson, Scott Lawson, Brett Deacon, Matias Cortese, Rory Lawson and Tom Voyce. Head coach Bryan Redpath resigned earlier this month.

The move concludes an underwhelming season for Tindall, who led England during a shambolic World Cup remembered for his off-field behaviour.

The centre, 33, has been overlooked by new head coach Stuart Lancaster since the former Saxons boss succeeded Martin Johnson late last year.
