Shortly after our conversation, the 6ft 1in, 300lb centre formally signs for Rugby United New York. The deal is done, it’s not a loan, and as L’Equipe put it, “Big Basta à Big Apple”. Toulon missed the playoffs so here Bastareaud is, a week before the French World Cup squad is named. Facebook Twitter Pinterest Matthieu Bastareaud poses with Pierre Arnald, James Kennedy and James English of RUNY. For me, I don’t come here for a holiday.
