Championship side Toulouse have announced that they will be taking part in a training day alongside NRL Champions Sydney Roosters next month. 

The event will take place on February 13 at the Sport and Intelligence National Centre in Paris, four days ahead of their World Club Challenge meeting with the Wigan Warriors.

Toulouse Head Coach Sylvain Houles is a former team-mate of Roosters boss Trent Robinson, with the pair having spent time together playing at the Stade des Minimes.

Robinson, who was voted Best NRL Coach of 2013, also spent time as Head Coach of the French side in 2005.

On the chance to train with the French side, Robinson said: “I’m looking forward to the boys experiencing it.”
