Rugby: Mehrtens signs for Toulon

All Blacks first-five Andrew Mehrtens is leaving for France.

The French second division club Toulon has confirmed they have signed the 34-year-old on a one year deal. Mehrtens has recently completed a two-year stint at English club Harlequins.

He will join Australian halfback and former captain George Gregan, who is set to play for Toulon for six months after this year's World Cup in France.

Tana Umaga played for Toulon for three months earlier this season.
