Toulouse have been rocked by news half-back Frédéric Michalak is set for another spell on the sidelines.

The France international damaged his ribs playing for the Toulouse youth team against Bayonne on Sunday.

The 28-year-old has now revealed that he has torn the intercostal muscle, meaning he is likely to be out of action for the next few weeks.

The injury is the latest setback for Michalak, who had only just returned after rupturing his knee ligaments in March.
