Toulon reportedly consider Stuart Lancaster as a contender to replace the recently-appointed Diego Dominguez as head coach.

Former England head coach Stuart Lancaster is reportedly in contention to take charge of Top 14 side Toulon.

The big-spending French club have appointed Diego Dominguez this summer, but the ex-Italy fly-half is unwilling to work with forwards coach Marc del Maso, according to L'Equipe.

However, Infosport+ claims that Lancaster and former All Blacks supremo Graham Henry are being lined up as options to replace Dominguez.

Henry, who also coached the Lions on their tour of Australia in 2001, is currently working with Leinster on a short-term deal.

Lancaster has also been linked with the Japan national team, while a possible return to Harlequins has been mooted.
