Thierry Dusautoir: set for six weeks on the sidelines
Thierry Dusautoir is a doubt for France's autumn internationals after injuring his knee in European Cup action for Toulouse.
The France skipper twisted his knee in a tackle in Toulouse's 33-21 victory over Treviso on Saturday and is set to be sidelined for six weeks.
Le Bleus kick off their autumn schedule against Australia on November 10 before matches against Argentina and Samoa on the following weekends.
"Thierry suffered a twisted internal lateral ligament with a slight tear," said Toulouse coach Guy Noves.
"It's an injury that necessitates between four and six weeks rest according to his ability to properly recuperate."
