Gloucester will be without scrum-half Haydn Thomas for six weeks after he fractured his collarbone at the weekend.

Thomas, a second half substitute, suffered the injury in the 32-19 European Challenge Cup victory over Bayonne at Kingsholm, which secured Gloucester a home quarter final against Brive.

Coach Dean Ryan is now short of options at number nine as Peter Richards is away with the England senior squad and Simon Amor has linked up with the sevens team.

"It's obviously extremely disappointing for Haydn because he had really been pushing for an opportunity," said Ryan.

"With the Six Nations upon us he had a real chance to press that claim but unfortunately for everyone concerned that will not happen now.

"As a club it is concerning because we are exposed at number nine with our commitments to support England."
