Aged 28, could be a good signing!

Should point out that this is coming from the same source that recently announced the massive scoop that Luke McAlister was joining Ospreys........ The day before he announced his total retirement from the game..

And this is also the same source that Linked Stuart Olding to Exeter too. So to say this source has a dubious track record is an accurate statement..

TalkingRugbyUnion has picked up the story


"Xavier Chiocci has been with Toulon since 2011, but is rumoured to be looking at a new club in the freshly branded Gallagher Premiership. Exeter Cheifs have been linked with the Top 14 loosehead prop, who has 10 international caps with France to his name."

I still don't believe there is anything in this story.

Am coming up with a blank on this rumour. All the links I can find don't list their sources, But furthermore after a bit of digging all of the links I can find are British based and nothing from France. Even Rugbyrama which is pretty much the French TRP is silent on the matter.

In light of Rimmer having to retire I can understand the need for another loosehead, But what about Marcus Street?

I may yet be proven wrong, But it makes little sense to me and I suspect is Chiocci looking for a better deal from Toulon.

Mr Baxter confirmed a couple of weeks ago that there will be no more new signings for this season.
