Springboks superstar Cheslin Kolbe made his full debut for Toulon this weekend after completing a transfer from European champions Toulouse earlier this year.
The 28-year-old South African hasn’t been able to play for the first four months of the season, but made his first start on the left wing against the Italian club Zebre in the Challenge Cup on Friday night.
Club captain and French international Baptiste Serin praised Kolbe’s communication on the pitch and said that whenever ‘he touches the ball, there is fire’. Serin said the plan was for Kolbe to play 60-minutes but he ended up playing the full match after moving to centre to cover an injury to Julien Hériteau.
” I found him clean and good in communication. You can’t see it but he communicates a lot. Now he needs to move on ,” said Baptiste Serin in his post-match comments on BeInSport.
“We feel someone reliable who will bring us consistency. You feel that, as soon as he touches the ball, there is fire, ” reassures Serin.
