Is this Mourad Boudjellal throwing the toys out of the pram because he can't get his own way only to fall back in love with 1/2p, or is it more permanent?

Remember, Toulon bought 1/2P ... 'with an injury' ? ..their problem. He was off for most of the Season.
His salary is 600-700k euros dependent who you believe.

He had the Lions assurance in his contract ...good for him and Lions.

He'll have similar release for Nov Internationals and 6 Nations etc.

Toulon also getting squeezed for extra french International release obligation and increased french qualified quota.

Boudjellal between a rock and a hard place. Rumour has it that he'll retain 1/2P with a distinctly revised salary on the expectation of the # games he's likely to plmay.

His kicking is vital to the .. his otherwise form has not been up to spec.

1/2P and Boudjellal will have to sort it out .. so be it! ;)

Does this French fella actually like rugby? All he does is kick shit around it.

Don't know, but he's made a success of it on and off the field....not sure about this Season but he does make profits and he's put a lot of his money into it.

Not one of the v rich Presidents and sold his business .....


Toulon local Govt bought into it big time.

But a maverick.

Thing is he can win games.


Unlike Farrel who strode on like a gun slinger and missed.

Now Bath are back on the scent and Montpelier and Stade Francais too after their 30m/3 years bail out
