CLERMONT CAPTAIN Aurelien Rougerie will be out for up to six weeks after suffering a badly sprained ankle in a shocking sliding tackle by Benjamin Boyet in weekend Top 14 action.

Rougerie sustained the injury when Boyet slid in, football style, and connected studs full on with the France international’s right ankle in Clermont’s 48-3 victory over Bayonne on Saturday.

The centre, who was cleared of any fracture, will notably miss two European Cup matches away to Exeter and Scarlets.
