Text size Aa Aa

(Reuters) – Scrumhalf Rhys Webb will leave Welsh side Ospreys at the end of the season to join French team Toulon on a three-year contract, according to multiple local media reports. Webb, who has 28 caps for Wales and won two British and Irish Lions caps on the 2017 tour to New Zealand, has made over 140 appearances for the Ospreys since his senior debut in 2007. His contract with the Pro14 side and the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) ends in 2018. The 28-year-old’s move to France could hinder his international career as WRU’s policy allows for the selection of only four players, that play for clubs outside Wales, to be included in the national team over the next two years. Webb, who made his Wales debut in 2012, joins a long list of players that have recently left the region including Dan Biggar, Liam Williams, Taulupe Faletau, George North and Jamie Roberts.
