    I was expecting that, tbh
    He's obviously moved north for the $$$, and Toulon seem to be the club that splash out the most atm

    If they don't win the top 14 and Heinekin Cup 2010/11 then I'll be amazed. With a back row of Smith, Lobbe and Niekerk, Heyman up front and talent like Wilko and Williams in the back they should be hard pressed not to loose.

    ****, only 29! Seems like he's been around forever. Smith certainly deserves his spell in French rugby to earn a bit of dosh, he's worked hard for years and years.

    Yeah he is only 29. If he stayed in Australia and got more national caps, he could have broken Gregan's record easily.
