Currently in South Africa to play the rugby tournament, Cheslyn Colby, the return of Toulouse, may be absent until December. In addition, the latter will discuss with Toulon, according to a British journalist.

Toulouse will have to take its troubles patiently. A staple of the red-and-black club since his arrival in 2017, Chaselain Colby must not delay the Toulouse shirt until next December. In fact, after signing an impressive double of the Top 14 – Champions Cup with his teammates last season, the South African later joined his selection to prepare for the Rugby Championship, which is currently being played and ends on 2 October. Then, after the big Southern Hemisphere Championships, Colby could also be selected by the Springboks for the Fall Test matches, which will take place on November 6. As a result, the successor, who will then have to take advantage of five weeks of statutory leave, may be absent until December. A blow to the team of Ugo Mola, who should also compose without Reinhardt Elstadt, Juan Cruz Malia and Santiago Chocobaris, in the same position, just as Facundo Bosch (La Rochelle).

Kolbe Ready for a change from Rouge et Noir?

But on the part of Ernest Wallon, it may not have been this long, usually already expected, absence of Colby that worries, but a rumor that appeared on Monday on social networks. According to Neil Wessler, British journalist (The Rugby Paper), the South African will discuss with Toulon! This information must of course be taken with caution, especially since the person in question is still under contract until 2023 with Toulouse and does not appear to have any reason to leave Haute-Garonne at the present time. For now, even if discussions are possible, it seems already difficult to see the world champion join the port quickly. However, after the absence of England’s Jonathan Joseph (Bath) and New Zealand’s Njane Laumab (Stadt France), it appears that Bernard Le Maitre is looking for a big hit at the back. These rumors are in any case going in that direction and will be one to watch closely over the coming months.
