Date published: January 3 2017

Clermont fly-half Patricio Fernández has been ruled out for up to ten weeks after he suffered a thigh injury in the Top 14 last weekend.

The 22-year-old Argentinean player was injured while playing against Toulouse at Stade Ernest Wallon, a fixture les Jaunards lost 26-20.

Fernández has started seven games in the Top 14 and three in the Champions Cup so far this term for Clermont, who sit atop the Top 14.

Clermont host Toulon this Sunday in the league before their attention moves to Europe and an away fixture against Bordeaux-Bègles.
