South Africa winger Bryan Habana has agreed to a new one-year extension with Toulon that will keep him at the Stade Mayol until the end of the 2018 season.
Habana, who turns 34 in June, has scored 18 tries in 57 games for the three-time European champions, with Toulon confirming the winger’s extension on Twitter.

The Springboks’ all-time leading try scorer responded in kind tweeting on his official Twitter account that he was ‘happy to stay a little longer’ at the club as Toulon look to keep their Top 14 and Champions Cup hopes alive starting with this Sunday’s home game against second place La Rochelle.
Les Corsaires are enjoying unprecedented success this season winning nine of their 16 league games but they face a Toulon side who are after booking their place in the Champions Cup quarter-finals for a fourth consecutive season.
Mike Ford’s side’s seven-point defeat to Saracens last weekend was enough to secure Toulon the eighth and final spot in this season’s knockout stages.
