Wallabies winger Drew Mitchell has opted not to re-sign with the Australian Rugby Union and is reportedly set to join former Test centre Matt Giteau at French club Toulon.
The ARU said the 63-Test veteran would leave Australia at the end of the season, with Fairfax newspapers citing the NSW Waratahs try-scorer as saying he was heading to France.
"First and foremost, playing for Australia means absolutely everything to me," he said, but he added that he wanted a new challenge in France.
"It's a challenge thing, what I want out of footy and life."
