Morgan Parra looks set to be unavailable for France’s November Tests after he was ruled out for up to six weeks with a shoulder injury.

The scrum-half was forced off in the first half of Clermont’s win over La Rochelle at the weekend and an MRI on Monday showed a serious injury to his right shoulder, and he is not expected back until mid-November.

That would all but end his hopes of featuring in the upcoming Test series, especially given that he had dropped down the pecking order and was not part of the 30-man squad called for a training camp last month.

Parra had already revealed on Saturday that he feel any force in his shoulder after suffering the injury.

It’s the latest blow for Philippe Saint-Andr
