England international in retirement U-turn
NEWS: Former England fullback Nick Abendanon has signed a two-year deal with second-tier Vannes three months after saying he was retiring, the French club said.
Abendanon, 33, played two Tests in 2007 spending six seasons with Clermont where he won a Top 14 title and the European Challenge Cup.
In April the former Bath three-quarter said he would end his career because of a lack of contract offers due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 2015 European Player of The Year heads to the ProD2 outfit who were eighth in the table when the campaign was declared over due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The French second-tier will also have Australia wing Henry Speight at Biarritz, Fiji flyhalf Benjamin Volavola at Perpignan and former South Africa Sevens winger Dylan Sage at Montauban playing the competition next term.
