Bryan Habana's thigh strain has proved more serious than initially thought and will require surgery which will rule him out for two months.

The Springbok wing sustained the injury in a European Cup match against Exeter Chiefs on Saturday, and was initially expected to be out of action for three weeks.

He was forced off the field in the 37th minute of the match after pulling up sharply as he tried to accelerate.

However, Toulon coach Bernard Laporte confirmed on Thursday that Habana will have to undergo an operation next week to repair the damage done to the muscle and would be out for at least two months.

That means he will miss the return match with Exeter in Toulon this weekend and the Top-14 games against Montpellier and Racing Metro.
