Fresh injury woes for Toulon

Date published: January 26 2016

Toulon scrum-half Sebastien Tillous-Borde has been ruled out for two months with a knee injury, the Top 14 giants announced on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old French international sustained the injury during Toulon's hard-fought 19-14 win over Bath in the Champions Cup on Saturday, and is scheduled for reconstructive surgery in the coming days.

Tillous-Borde is the latest addition to the three-time European Cup winners' list of injury lay-offs, with Matt Giteau, Leigh Halfpenny, Frederic Michalak and Paul O'Connell also sidelined by injury.

Jonathan Pélissié is set to return to action from a two-month injury lay-off for Toulon and will provide cover for Tillous-Borde at scrum-half.
