Lote Tuqiri considers playing in France

9:02 am on 9 January 2010

The former Wallabies rugby winger Lote Tuqiri hasn't ruled out a move to France after his stint with English side Leicester.

Tuqiri has mentioned Toulon in his future considerations.

Tuqiri moved from Sydney to a village just outside Leicester with his wife and two sons after joining the club when the Australian Rugby Union terminated his contract in July 2009.

Leicester head coach Richard Cockerill says it's up to Tuqiri whether he returns to the club next season amid suggestions the 30-year-old could be bound for a rugby league comeback in Australia.
