Umaga's days may be numbered at Toulon

9:36 am on 24 September 2008

If reports in England are enything to go by then Tana Umaga's days at French club Toulon are numbered.

Umaga took over as coach last year and helped them in promotion to the French top 14 competition, and so far this season they're 7th on the table with 2 wins from 5 matches.

However that doesn't appear to be good enough with owner Mourad Boudjellal with reports suggesting Umaga isn't currently with the club and that former Wallabies and Stade Francais coach John Connolly is heading to France.

The loss of Umaga would be a blow to league-convert Sonny Bill Williams, who has been mentored by the former All Black since his arrival in France.
