Flood pondering future
Leicester fly-half Toby Flood is considering effectively ending his England career by moving abroad.
The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Jonny Wilkinson's Toulon.
Such a switch would likely rule him out of international contention, but having been reduced to an understudy role of late, Flood concedes he is left with a difficult decision.
"I would never leave Leicester for another English club but I know I have to make up my mind as it affects other people and their livelihoods," he was quoted as saying in the Daily Telegraph.
"I have spoken to Stuart (Lancaster, England coach) and tried to be as open and honest as I can be. But, no, I haven't been on the phone yet to Jonny.
"I imagine a move (overseas) would probably rule me out of England. For me, it is no longer about whether a move might further my career.
"It is about where I feel comfortable, about who I enjoy hanging out with and where I'm living."
Leicester have reportedly given Flood a month to make up his mind.
