Brive: long absences for Luka Japaridze, Setareki Bituniyata and Tevita Ratuva

Eighth in the Top 14, the CAB will have to deal with several long-term absences. Victim of a rupture of the cruciate ligaments of a knee against Perpignan on September 10, the right pillar Japaridze (21 matches played last season) was activated on Tuesday and could return at best at the end of the season, informed AFP on Wednesday with the Corrèze club, confirming information from The mountain.

Winger Setareki Bituniyata (18 starts in the Top 14, 3 tries scored in 2021-2022), touched at the start of the season against Lyon, will also undergo an operation soon which should keep him away from the field between three and six months. Finally, the second line Tevita Ratuva (22 games played last season), who broke two fingers against USAP, is not on the field before the end of the year.
