What if Toulon opted for an unexpected solution? Looking for a technician to train the back lines next season following the departure of Franck Azéma in Perpignan, the Var club is interested in the former Welsh international opening half Stephen Jones (104 selections), according to our information. Discussions exist between the two parties. With the director of Toulon rugby Pierre Mignoni, they know each other well. They even played two seasons together, from 2004 to 2006, under the colors of Clermont. One was scrum-half, the other opener.
After his fine playing career ended in 2013, Jones became a coach. First with the English Wasps then on the side of the Scarlets to, in both cases, take care of the back lines. In 2019, he joined the Wales coaching staff as attacking manager before stepping down at the end of last year following the appointment of Warren Gatland as manager. Since then, Jones (45) has been free.
