Sheridan in talks with Top 14 Club Toulon

England Prop Andrew Sheridan’s early Rugby World Cup exit due to injury may have been the last time he wears an England shirt after it has been revealed that he has entered talks with Toulon.

Sheridan and his troublesome shoulders became the first big name injury to be ruled out of the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The prop was not considered for Six Nations duty as he is still recovering from his world cup shoulder injury and is only expected back for Sale Sharks next month.

However, the Telegraph reports that Sheridan met with Toulon manager Bernard Laporte in Paris on Tuesday this week and then visited the club on Wednesday.

Sheridan would effectively bring the curtain down on his international career with a move to Toulon in France as the RFU have a policy of only calling up foreign based players for England duty under “exceptional circumstances”.

A number of other players have been linked to Toulon for next season including England full-back Delon Armitage and London Irish lock Nick Kennedy, while Former England players Jonny Wilkinson, Simon Shaw, Steffon Armitage and Dean Schofield are already at Toulon as well as former Saracens lock Kris Chesney.
