Rapira signs for Toulouse

Huddersfield Giants forward Sam Rapira has signed for Toulouse Olympique on a one-year deal.

Rapira’s end-of-season exit from the Giants was revealed last night and Olympique have announced the signing of the World Cup winning prop forward this morning.

It’s a major coup for the Championship club, who finished fifth in their first season back in the second tier.

With star half-back Johnathon Ford and hooker Charles Bouzinac both signed up for 2018 too, Sylvain Houles’ side are in a good place despite missing out on the Qualifiers this year.
