Stade Toulousain rugby club's English fly half Toby Flood speaks to the press on the steps of a training …

- One high-profile England fly-half might have left the Top 14 in the shape of Jonny Wilkinson, but another has landed in the form of Toby Flood, whose debut in the French elite could not have been any more assured.

Flood had a game to remember last week, scoring all of Toulouse's points in the 20-19 opening victory over Oyonnax.

His decision to move from Leicester might have cost him a place in the England set-up in the run-up to the 2015 World Cup, but Flood has no regrets.

"I had the opportunity to represent my country 60 times for a long period," said Flood. "I couldn't miss the opportunity to come to Toulouse. I always wanted to play in a different country.

"It's been enjoyable so far really, this team has some fantastic players."

Toulouse host near-neighbours Castres on Friday.
