I don't expect him to be his old destructive self again, once over the wall...always over the wall

very interesting move and most likely out of desperation by toulon.

Definitely out of desperation. I think they're favourites for the drop...

Tana comes back you say:

And he will be of lower spirit you mean:

I tell you that you are wrong:

Look at him, how do you think is he going to give in???? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't think anybody is doubting his spirit or his ability. Just his fitness and age.

The only way is down. Shame as he was a decent centre in his day.

Here's the official Interview regarding this situation.

I don't think he'd come back if he wasn't fit. Maybe a bit out of the daily training regiment.
If Olly LaRue can play 15 minutes for Leinster, Tana Umaga can play 40 for Toulon. It's that simple.

The home side belied their recent travails, especially in a dazzling second half, and it seems the threat alone of Tana Umaga pulling back on his boots was enough to bring the best out of his charges. Best not be shown up by the boss, and on this form there wasn&#39;t really much danger of that. Umaga had planned to play but was frustrated by a delayed letter of clearance from the New Zealand federation - but after this display he may not be required.[/b]

He did name himself in the squad of 25!

If my coach had been one of the most feared #13&#39;s only a couple of years ago, and threatened to come out and win the game himself, I think I&#39;d be quite motivated to step up my performance.

Even if he doesn&#39;t play that is great psychological superiority when you know he stands with you

I cant imagine his fitness can be up to that standard of rugby. Perhaps with a good pre-season behind him he could be competitive but not now at this time of the season
