Star signing Leigh Halfpenny is set to miss out again this weekend for Toulon, with the Wales full-back sidelined through injury.

Halfpenny is still struggling with a groin issue which has prevented him from making his debut for the French and European champions.

The 25-year-old missed the end of the last campaign following a shoulder operation, required after he made a tackle on Luther Burrell playing for Wales against England at Twickenham.

The new groin injury has kept him out of Toulon's first four matches this season, with his club winning three of those games.

There is no word on when Halfpenny will be match fit. Toulon take on Stade Français this Saturday at home.
