Guirado to miss start of the season

Date published: July 27 2016

France captain Guilhem Guirado is due to miss the start of the new Top 14 season with his club Toulon because of injury.

Guirado suffered a knee injury during the final defeat against Racing 92 in Barcelona back in June.

Rugbyrama report that although Guirado received a positive update following an MRI scan on Monday, he is unlikely to be fit in time for the start of the new campaign.

Guirado still faces a further five weeks out, meaning he will miss the start of the new season which kicks off on August 20. 

Toulon start their campaign away from home at newly-promoted Bayonne.
