Profile

Zaire-born flanker Yannick Nyanga plays for Toulouse in the Top 14 and has accrued over 20 caps for France at international level.

He possesses explosive pace from the base of the scrum and is also a key part of Toulouse's attacking arsenal. Nyanga joined AS Beziers in 1998 but made the switch to Toulouse in 2005 when his former side were relegated. He has since become an integral member of their formidable back-row alongside current IRB World Player of the Year Thierry Dusautoir.

Nyanga made the 2007 World Cup squad but missed out on selection four years later. Though with Philippe Saint-Andre at the helm, Nyanga was back in the international reckoning for the 2012 Six Nations.
