Akapusi Qera appears on his way out of Kingsholm with reports in France claiming the Gloucester flanker has signed for Toulouse.

The Fiji star is out of contract at the end of the season and had been linked with a summer move to the Top 14.

But speculation over his future intensified after he was left out of the Cherry and White’s squad for last week’s Heineken Cup clash with Edinburgh.

Now French newspaper L’Equipe have reported the 29-year-old has signed for the four times former Heineken Cup champions. It is claimed Qera will join the French giants on January 1, as a ‘medical joker’ for crocked Gregory Lamboley.

Toulouse would have to strike a deal to buy Qera out of the remaining six months on his contract with Gloucester and it is understood an agreement is yet to be reached.

The club were unavailable to comment today but the news has been received with great disappointment from fans and players alike with Nick Wood and Huia Edmonds venting their frustration on Twitter.

Nick Wood said: “Going to miss big @qera7 Amazing player in defence and attack, one of the Gloucester greats. Wish he was staying with us!”

Huia Edmonds added: “Don’t know why we are getting rid of one of @gloucesterrugby best players over the past 8 years. But all the best @qera7 #jouerjouer

Qera joined Gloucester in 2007 and quickly established himself as a fans favourite for his all action performances.

During his six years at the club he has made 141 appearances and scored 33 tries.

But he has fallen down the pecking order at Kingsholm following the summer arrival of Matt Kvesic.

    A troll is a troll and Rob-quedgeley/gloslover-not/dumbanddumber20/dopey-lerone is a clueless Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating troll who has no idea where Kingsholm is because he doesn't even support Gloucester Rugby, He has no idea about rugby union either as he loves watching wendyball.

    Let's face it, Gloucester's scrum is never the same without Rupҽrt Hardҽn anchoring it and we have no effective maul or defence against it when he is not on the field. Nigel Davies knows that which is why he (and not the clueless multi-identitied troll Rob-quedgeley/gloslover-not/dopey-lerone/bikeshed/dumbanddumber20) selects Harden to start in the tough, critical games.

    Nigel Davies knows that Harden is his top tight head; everyone else knows that Rupҽrt Hardҽn is the best tight head at Glaws. The only one who thinks otherwise and thinks he is better than Nigel Davies is the troll Rob-quedgeley/gloslover-not/dopey-lerone/bikeshed/dumbanddumber20 etc.

    Rob-quedgeley/dopey-lerone/dumbanddumber20 is upset because he has been found out using another of his Gloucester Rugby hating troll identities. Now he is on his big-baby anti-Rupҽrt Hardҽn mega-rant just because Harden has proved him so wrong time after time with his brilliant displays of tight head rugby.

    Let's face it, the so-called "Rob-quedgeley" aka "gloslover-NOT" aka The_Selector" is just the same clueless old Gloucester hating multi-identity troll who has never been to any Gloucester game at Kingsholm, let alone any away and has no idea about front row play. He knows nothing about Puafisi or any other Gloucester Rugby. He doesn't even know what the Shed is. # Rupҽrt Hardҽn is Gloucester Rugby's stand-out tight head. ND knows it which is why he selects him to start all the critical games.

    Harden = Gloucester Rugby's first choice tight head. No doubt about it!

    It's hilarious the way the Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating multi-troll switches from his "Rob(I-haven't-a-clue-where-I-am)quedgeley" identity to his "gl-one" and "spinnerjim" identities expecting everyone to take him seriously. Rupҽrt Hardҽn... Most starts at tight head.... Most starts of any front row player this season. That proves he is the top rated tight head at Gloucester.
