The 30-year-old, who has not played for England since moving to France in 2012, won the European Cup in his first season with Toulon.

Although born in the West Indies, Armitage spent six years of his childhood on the Cote D'Azur and started playing rugby with Nice before being selected for France's under-16 team.

On returning to England he joined Richmond before signing for London Irish, where he spent 10 years before moving to Toulon.

His brother Steffon, also an England international, plays alongside him on the south coast of France while another brother Guy plays for his old club, Irish.

A fourth brother, Bevon, plays for another of his former clubs, Nice.
