Delon Armitage will miss the Champions Cup final after fracturing his hand in the semi-final win over Leinster on Sunday.

The Toulon full-back finished the game in Marseille, which Toulon won 25-20 after extra-time, but underwent tests on Monday which revealed a fracture.

According to L'Equipe he will be out for four to five weeks, meaning he will miss the final against Clermont at Twickenham in a fortnight.

Two years ago Armitage scored the winning try when the sides met at the same stage and he would have likely started on the wing as he did in the semi-final.

Toulon have plenty of options to come in, with Drew Mitchell having started on the bench on Sunday.
