Toulon have suffered an injury blow after scrum-half Éric Escande was ruled out for between two to four weeks due to a dislocated finger.

The 24-year-old sustained the problem while playing against Racing 92 and was replaced in the 19th minute by Sébastien Tillous-Borde.

Toulon won the game 17-11 in a result that moves them up to fourth in the Top 14 table, five points off co-leaders Clermont and La Rochelle.
