Leigh Halfpenny’s future at Toulon appears to have been resolved following a meeting between the Wales full-back’s representative and club officials.

The 25-year-old has not played since surgery on a dislocated shoulder he suffered in the Six Nations in March and he is now out with a groin injury.
