Toulon sign Pumas hooker as medical cover

European champions Toulon announced Tuesday the signing of Argentina hooker Matias Cortese as medical cover for injured South African Craig Burden.

Burden, who is suffering from a pectoral muscle injury, needs an operation and will be out of action for several months, Toulon said in a statement.

Cortese, who was an unused substitute for the Pumas in their 18-13 victory over France in Paris on Saturday, is no stranger to French rugby fans, having previously played for Biarritz, Bayonne and Colomiers.

The 29-year-old has also worn the colours of Northampton and Gloucester in England.
