Racing 92: six months of absence for Bernard Le Roux

It’s been a tough blow for Racing 92 and, first and foremost, for Bernard Le Roux, who has been spared little injury lately. The second-line international (33 years old, 47 caps), regularly called by Fabien Galthié during the rallies of the France team, even if he no longer appeared on the match sheets of the Blues since the emergence of Cameron Woki , even of Thibaud Flament in the cage, should not play rugby again during “about six months”. This was announced by the manager of the Ile-de-France club Laurent Travers at a press conference on Thursday.

Package for the November tour and the Six Nations Tournament

Le Roux suffered a blow to the head this past weekend in the Top 14 in a clash with third-line Loann Goujon, during Racing’s victory over Lyon (32-19). The South African-born player had to leave his partners in the 46th minute. It is therefore necessary to believe that the exams taken at the beginning of the week proved to be sufficiently alarmist to prevent the player from resuming competition before the start of spring. One year before the World Cup in France, Le Roux will therefore also miss the November tour and the Six Nations Tournament with the Blues.
