Ma’a Nonu Ready for Adventure With Toulon

Ma’a Nonu has arrived at Toulon – fresh from helping New Zealand retain the Rugby World Cup last month.

“I want to thank the club and especially (president) Mourad Boudjellal for this opportunity and I’m looking forward to playing my rugby here,” said Nonu.

“He is a world champion and a big signing for Toulon Rugby Club. It is a great pride, he is a great player”, said Mourad Boudjellal, president of the club.

The All Blacks star said that he was looking forward to playing for the club that won the European Champions Cup three seasons in a row.

“I come here for a new adventure, this is my home now and I will give my all for Toulon.”

“I’ve watched the Top 14 over the years and it’s a great competition, a great style of rugby — similar to New Zealand footy — really passionate fans and one of the best competitions in the world.”
