French flyer Damian Penaud has been ruled of his country’s autumn internationals, Clermont Auvergne have confirmed.


The winger picked up a serious injury to his left ankle during Friday training, with the Top 14 giants reporting that he suffered “a tibio-fubular sprain” and will be sidelined for a period of between six and eight weeks.

Penaud started three matches at the recent Rugby World Cup and has been a regular feature for France in recent years. He burst onto the international scene in June, 2017, scoring a try against the Springboks in Durban and has since earned 17 caps for Les Bleus.

Clermont have also confirmed that back row, Tavite Veredamu, will also be out of action for a spell. The forward suffered a knee rotation at the start of the game against Agen is ruled out for at least a month.
