Nonu arrives in Toulon

The All Black second five Ma'a Nonu has arrived at his new French club Toulon and he's been pencilled in for his debut game in the Top 14.

Nonu will play his first game for Toulon against Agen in the Top 14 on December 5th.

The double World Cup winner was unveiled to the media by the club today and told them he had sought plenty of advice before moving to the south of France.

"I have a special relationship with Tana Umaga, who was here as a player-coach, Sonny Bill Williams, I'm really close to Chris Masoe and they had a lot to say about Toulon, the people are really nice, it's the place to play rugby in terms of the fans are mad about rugby and it’s a really nice lifestyle for the family.

Nonu is the lastest in the new arrivals at Toulon, following South African Duane Vermulen, Australian Quade Cooper and American Samu Manoa.
