Gareth Llewellyn, Wales' most capped rugby player, is heading to France.
Llewellyn, who played his 90th Test in last month's 18-53 loss to South Africa, has signed a deal with Narbonne, according to agent Peter Underhill.
The 35-year-old lock becomes the third high-profile Welsh player to head to France, following fullback Gareth Thomas' move to Toulouse and Stephen Jones' decision to sign with Montferrand.
Llewellyn was released by the Neath-Swansea Ospreys during the season after a dispute with coach Lyn Jones.
"Gareth is excited about the possiblity of playing in France and starting a new phase of his career at the age of 35," Underhill said.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
