NEWS: Georgian international hooker Shalva Mamukashvili joined Toulon as injury cover for Jean-Charles Orioli, the Top 14 club said.

Orioli ruptured his cruciate knee ligament last month against Lyon and will miss the rest of the season.

Mamukashvili, 26, played five matches for Montpellier earlier this season when acting as injury cover for South African Bismarck Du Plessis. 

The Tbilisi native, who has 47 Georgia caps, previously played for Sale and Glasgow in Britain.
