    Waratahs in talks with Toulon for glamour club game

    Australia's NSW Waratahs are negotiating to play in a billed World Club Championship game against French giants Toulon just a week before their Super Rugby title defence kicks off, reports said Friday.

    The Waratahs are in talks with the Top 14 champions about playing the game in Toulon on February 5 or 6, before making a dash back to Sydney to prepare for their Super Rugby season opener against Western Force on February 15, The Daily Telegraph said.

    The newspaper said because it would be the Wallabies-studded Tahs' final pre-season game they would field a strong side featuring nearly all the players who took the 2014 Super Rugby title.

    The match throws up the possibility of Kurtley Beale v Matt Giteau, Israel Folau v Leigh Halfpenny and Adam Ashley-Cooper v Drew Mitchell if the negotiations can be finalised.

    Waratahs captain Dave Dennis said his side would only make the long trip if they felt it would not hamper their preparations for their opening Super 15 match in Sydney.

    I must admit their would be some great match ups and I wouldn't mind watching it. Also the 'Tahs would be knackered when the Force play them! Let's get it on!

    That's the most sensible thing anyone's said on this site in days!

    The Tahs can afford the trip then! Good on 'em!
    Being totally sceptical maybe it's a way of Chieka checking out the o'seas players in case the ARU change the rules!

    To be fair, the Folau vs Halfpenny matchup isn't that surprising.

    Probably the TV networks that will televise the game.
