Toulouse lose Guitone to injury

Date published: October 19 2016

Toulouse have suffered a setback when it was revealed that winger Sofiane Guitoune is set for a spell on the sidelines due to injury.

According to an AFP report, the 27-year-old France international, who joined Toulouse from Bordeaux-Bègles in June, is suffering from a groin injury and will be out for at least six weeks.

Guitoune's absence is a another blow for the Top 14 outfit who take on Wasps in their Pool 2 Champions Cup fixture at Stade Ernest Wallon on Sunday. 

Toulouse suffered a defeat in their tournament opener against Connacht last weekend and are already without the services of utility-back Luke McAlister (back), back-row Gilian Galan (neck), full-back Alexis Palisson (groin) and lock Richie Gray (concussion).
