Manoa sidelined for one month

Date published: December 16 2015

Toulon forward Samu Manoa is facing a one-month absence from his side's Top 14 and Champions Cup campaigns.

Manoa damaged his knee ligaments during last Sunday's win over Leinster.

The USA international is now set for around four weeks on the sidelines to recover.

Manoa, who joined the European champions from Northampton Saints this season on a four-year contract, has won 15 Test caps and recently starred at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
