NEWS: Racing 92 scrumhalf Xavier Chauveau has been ruled out of the rest of the season after the French champions confirmed he will require shoulder surgery.

The 24-year-old was injured in the first half of last Saturday's 37-25 defeat to Lyon in the French Top 14 where he was playing instead of first choice Maxime Machenaud who is away on Six Nations duty.

Racing could now turn to Ireland's James Hart to fill the gap.
