Clermont's Rougerie out for a month with knee injury

By Harry West
Clermont’s Aurelien Rougerie

Aurelien Rougerie will miss Clermont Auvergne’s final two European Champions Cup group matches after sustaining a knee injury.


The veteran back, capped 76 times by France, picked up the problem in Sunday’s 31-27 home defeat to Castres.

Clermont released an update on Tuesday, confirming he would be out for a month due to a partial ligament strain.

He is likely to┬ámiss Clermont’s Top 14 fixtures against Racing 92 and Montpellier, which fall either side of Champions Cup clashes with Northampton Saints and the Ospreys.

Clermont sit top of Pool 2 having won all four games this season, holding a five-point lead over the Ospreys.
