Pau have suffered a major blow in their push for the play-offs after Conrad Smith was ruled out for six weeks with an ankle tendon injury.

The Top 14 outfit announced the news on Tuesday, with the former All Black centre sustaining the injury in their 32-27 victory over Montpellier.

Smith will undergo surgery in the coming days and is set to miss their Top 14 fixtures against Lyon, Grenoble and Toulouse in the coming weeks and also their Challenge Cup pool matches against Cardiff Blues and Bath.
