Agen players called off their pay strike on Friday and agreed to travel to Toulon for their final Top 14 match of the season, AFP's reporter on the ground said.

The relegated club's players had refused to train on Thursday and apparently threatened not to play against Toulon on Saturday in protest at unpaid salaries.

However, a compromise was reached following a meeting on Friday morning between players, their union and the club's president Alain Tingaud.
