Tulou undergoes surgery

Date published: December 29 2016

Castres number eight Alex Tulou had to undergo surgery on Wednesday after suffering an injury.

The American Samoa-born loose-forward will be out for at least three months after injuring his arm according to Rugbyrama.

The injury happened in a defeat for Castres against Racing last weekend.

The loss of Tulou will be a big blow, given Tulou's power off the base of the scrum and his prominent role for Christophe Urios and his side throughout the current campaign.
