France flyhalf Francois Trinh-Duc will be out for three weeks with a sprained ankle.

France flyhalf Francois Trinh-Duc will be out for three weeks with a sprained ankle, his club Montpellier said on Monday.

The international No.10, who endured a frustrating Six Nations campaign playing second fiddle to Toulon's Frederic Michalak, injured his ankle in Saturday's European Cup defeat at Clermont.

He was forced off in the 27th minute of the 14-36 quarterfinal reverse, to be replaced by Pierre Berard.

As a result, Trinh-Duc will miss Montpellier's next two Top 14 clashes against Toulouse and Bayonne but should be fit to face Perpignan on May 4 on the final day of the regular season.

He is likely to be replaced by either Argentine international Santiago Fernandez or scrumhalf Benoit Paillaugue may move to No.10.

Montpellier currently sit fifth in the table and have a six-point advantage over seventh-placed Perpignan in the race for a top six finish and play-off spot.
