France’s Romain Ntamack could miss the start of the Six Nations after suffering a horror jaw injury over the weekend. The fly-half was injured during the first-half of Toulouse’s 45-23 Top 14 win over Bordeaux Bègles on Sunday, and Ntamack revealed the extent of the damage on social media today.

Ntamack outlined that he suffered a double jaw fracture, putting his availability for the opening rounds of the 2021 Six Nations in doubt.

The 21-year-old stated he will undergo surgery in the coming weeks, meaning he is almost certain to miss Toulouse’s Heineken Champions Cup games against Exeter Chiefs and Ulster later this month.
