Ford: Toulon is the greatest club in Europe

Recently appointed assistant coach at Toulon Mike Ford has lauded the club as the most prestigious club in Europe.

Ford says it is an honour for him to coach at Toulon and says the groundwork to improve the side is already established.

"Toulon is the greatest club in Europe, it is an honour for me," Ford told ESPN.

"There are already some good things in place and I'm going to try to improve things even little by little so that we become a machine."

"I am here to help, maybe tweak the way they execute the plays and help to make Toulon play a more attacking brand of rugby."
