Six Nations over for Lamerat

Date published: March 3 2015

France centre Rémi Lamerat's participation in this year's Six Nations Championship appears to have been ended by injury.

The Castres centre lasted just 18 minutes in Saturday's defeat to Wales at the Stade de France before a pulled hamstring forced him off.

The 25-year-old confirmed on Tuesday that he will be out for over a fortnight, ruling him out of France's clash with Italy and meaning he is highly likely to feature against England a week later.

"Pulled right hamstring. Fifteen days off ," tweeted Lamerat.

The six-cap international will also miss his club's Top 14 games at home to Lyon this weekend and away  to Bayonne next week.
