Bastien Ader commits to Toulouse

Toulouse Olympique have confirmed that centre Bastien Ader will play for the club in 2017 in the Championship.

The 25-year-old has been with TO since 2011, when he arrived in the club’s ranks as a winger.

Now established at centre, Ader scored seven tries in 19 games during Toulouse’s successful attempt to be promoted from League 1 in 2016.

He is hoping to use the 2017 campaign to stake a claim for a spot in the France side.
