It's a huge opportunity for Jackson Willison to play in France.

The offer caught Willison by surprise after receiving a call earlier this month, and he only had a week to consider the offer, an offer he couldn't refuse.

Willison wouldn't reveal how much was on offer.

He'll join a mix of players from Australia and South Africa when he arrives in France and hopes to become a regular starter in the midfield, but his focus at present is the Auckland Blues.
