France Star Ruled Out Of Entire Six Nations Campaign
We reported yesterday that flanker Louis Picamoles was set to miss this weekend’s game against Ireland but it’s now been confirmed he will miss the remainder of the RBS 6 Nations entirely.
The powerful number eight was forced off in the early stages of his side’s narrow 23-21 win over Italy at the Stade de France with a hamstring injury.
Picamoles absence will be a boost for Ireland as they prepare to travel to Paris on Saturday, just six days after their bruising 16-16 draw with Wales. Picamoles has been replaced in Guy Noves’s squad by Bordeaux-Begles number eight Loann Goujon.
