Juan Martin Fernandez-Lobbe: Out for three months
Toulon and Argentina back-row Juan Martin Fernandez-Lobbe has been ruled out of action for around three months.
Lobbe fractured his right elbow in the Top 14 match against Toulouse on Saturday.
The 31-year-old Argentina star came on as a second-half substitute, but was forced off the field 15 minutes later after sustaining the injury as the European champions lost 13-12.
Fernandez-Lobbe will undergo an operation to fix the damage done to his elbow and he will miss the November Test matches against England, Wales, Italy and Ireland.
A statement on Toulon's official website said: "Hit against Toulouse on Saturday, flanker Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe has suffered a fracture of the right elbow.
"He will see a doctor in a Marseille to have an operation. His unavailability is estimated at two to three months."
