The 30-year-old Biarritz star suffered a thigh injury during the 18-17 victory over England on Sunday. He will definitely miss Saturday's French Championship match against Agen. His clubmate Jimmy Marlu will undergo a scan on a left knee ligament injury he suffered in the England match and the winger will also miss the Agen date. Another of Biarritz and France's long-term injury victims, dashing fullback Nicolas Brusque, is still only in light training after suffering a neck injury at the beginning of January and is also a doubt for the Agen clash.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
