Racing scrum-half Maxime Machenaud could be an injury doubt for France's November internationals, club coach Laurent Travers said on Tuesday.

Machenaud sustained the hand injury in the 13-9 win over Clermont on Sunday and will definitely miss Racing's upcoming trip to the Scarlets.

The 24-year-old, capped 11 times, was named in France's October training squad, but could miss Tests with New Zealand, Tonga and South Africa.
