Toulon look to sign Shaw as cover for Botha

Toulon are hoping to sign England veteran lock Simon Shaw as injury cover for South African Bakkies Botha in France’s Top 14.

Botha, 32, signed a three-year deal with Toulon in the summer but is currently sidelined after returning from the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand with an Achilles tendon injury.

London Wasps lock Shaw was in the stands on Saturday as Toulon beat Brive 18-3.

The French club have already contacted Wasps with a view to bringing the 38-year-old Shaw on board.
