Some may not understand, me either, but as I was told "it's a business". I have to put my feelings aside." Signed Cheslin Kolbe, to explain his decision to leave RC Toulon after two seasons spent in the Var. Free, the South African winger (29 years, 24 caps) has set his sights on Tokyo Suntory Sungoliath, which he will join after the World Cup (September 8-October 28).
In a statement, Kolbe justified his choice to join Japan Rugby League One: "This is a new chapter and a new challenge in my career. I would like to thank all those who made the transfer possible. Suntory has an impressive history, and I look forward to creating new memories with the team in the coming seasons. I hope to produce performances that fans can enjoy. See you soon!"
