Australian fullback Luke Rooney has ditched the Melbourne Rebels after just one season in order to re-sign with Toulon.

Toulon also confirmed that former Gloucester hooker Olivier Azam will take charge of the club's forwards during the next campaign.

Rooney will also be joined by Castres scrum-half Sebastien Tillous-Borde.

I'm sure the Rebels will not be devastated in losing Rooney, as he has generally struggled for them (though has hardly been part of a functioing backline...).

Do you think Toulon will try to get Nonu?
I saw he was sacked from the Canes, but no speculation whatsoever about a NH move. Has he ruled it out explicitly?

Edit: wrong thread for it, I'll post it on the Nonu one.
