Grenoble number eight Rory Grice will miss his side’s Top 14 visit to high-flying Toulon on Sunday because of a sprained ankle, it’s been confirmed.
However, Sunday’s match is likely to mark the debut of Grenoble’s exciting new signing, South African second-row forward Paul Willemse.
Willemse, 21, was signed from the Bulls as an emergency replacement for fellow-South African Naude Beukes, who is out with a groin strain.
He is expected to start alongside Hendrik Roodt with Ben Hand dropping back to replace Grice.
