White finsihes report on Toulon

8:17 am on 17 December 2008

Former Springbok coach Jake White has completed his analysis of the situation at French rugby club Toulon and his report doesn't contain anything startling.

It took the World Cup-winning coach just six days and one European Challenge Cup match to draw his conclusions and Toulon's millionaire club owner Mouad Boudjellal seemed satisfied.

In terms of the what goes on on the pitch, White has recommended a downsizing of coach Tana Umaga's squad.

Boudjellal says White feels at 54 they have too many players in the squad, which has a tendency to pull the general standard of the squad down.

Toulon are 12th in the French top 14 competition with just 3 wins from 12 matches.
