Racing Métro have been dealt a double blow with the news that Casey Laulala and Davit Khinchagishvili face several months out.

The former All Black centre broke his arm during Racing's loss to Clermont on Saturday and is set to be out for at least six weeks, while the news is even worse for Khinchagishvili, who has torn his cruciate ligament.

The Georgian prop will be out for at least six months, leaving Racing struggling in the front row after Julien Brugnaut was also forced off during the Clermont loss.

Racing have already started their search for a pair of medical jokers to replace the two players, although the timing is not ideal with available options in the front row, in particular, in short supply.
