Ankle injury: Gael Fickou

France centre Gael Fickou has been ruled out for a month with an ankle injury, meaning he will miss the start of the Six Nations.

The 18-year-old sustained the injury after coming on as a replacement in Toulouse's 35-14 win over Treviso in the Heineken Cup on Sunday.

It means he will miss the pre-Six Nations training camp with the French squad and also Les Bleus' first two matches against Italy on 3 February and Wales six days later.

He will also be sidelined for Sunday's crucial Heineken Cup clash at Leicester, with the winner progressing to the knockout round.

"Verdict: 4 weeks out, twisted ankle (external ligament), that's part of the game!" said Fickou in a tweet.
