Bayonne took notice of this and signed him in 2010 where he had an impressive opening season. This led to his international debut against Argentina in 2010. He returned to Toulouse in 2012, where his form continued to improve. He remained in Saint-Andre's plans throughout the 2013 Six Nations campaign.

2016 was another successful year for the winger as he was able to recover his form he had prior to injury.
