Date published: January 17 2017

Lyon have suffered a blow after flanker Deon Fourie was ruled out for at least six weeks with a knee injury, it was revealed on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old, who arrived at the club from the Stormers in 2014 and can also play hooker, has been a key cog in the side since joining.

He has injured ligaments in his left knee and will be a huge miss for Lyon, who are 12th in the Top 14, nine points off the relegation spots.
