Picamoles to miss Ulster visit

Date published: December 14 2015

Toulouse will be without star number eight Louis Picamoles this weekend for their rematch with Irish province Ulster in the Champions Cup.

Picamoles, set to join Northampton Saints next season, departed from Friday's heavy 38-0 loss at Ravenhill with a shoulder injury, specificially to his AC joint.

How long Picamoles will be sidelined for remains to be seen but according to Rugbyrama the injury is less severe than initially feared.

The four-time champions are well adrift in Pool 1, ten points behind leaders Saracens.
