Four months out for Toeava

Date published: January 17 2017

Clermont full-back Isaia Toeava is set to miss up to four months after he was sidelined with an injury he picked up over the weekend.

The former All Black, who joined the French side as a medical joker in 2016, suffered the triceps injury against Bordeaux-B├Ęgles on Sunday.

Toeava requires surgery on the problem, which will take place on Wednesday, and with Nick Abendanon and David Strettle also currently injured, this is another setback for the Top 14 team who are currently sitting atop both their league standings and their Champions Cup pool.
