Facundo Isa visits Toulon
Argentina flanker Facundo Isa made a short visit to Toulon last Thursday. The last administrative details concerning his recruitment by RCT were settled and he took advantage of his coming to be photographed alongside Chairman Mourad Boudjellal – an RCT tradition now.
Facundo Isa, a powerful flanker capable of breaking through backlines – 6.1 feet tall, weighing 16st 7lb – had already played for RCT in the 2013-2014 season. He had only played one Top 14 game and had then gone back to Argentina to play for Pampas XV, then Jaguares. He has established himself as a key element in his national team – six games played in the 2015 World Cup – before signing for Lyon. In his spell there, he played seven games and scored three tries.
He is to join RCT for the next two seasons.
