INJURY UPDATE: Montpellier's France international flank Yacouba Camara will miss the November internationals with an ankle injury that will sideline him for up to eight weeks, the player said on Monday.

France flyhalf Camille Lopez will also miss the November internationals and the Six Nations after breaking his ankle in Clermont's 24-7 defeat to Northampton on Saturday.

Camara was also hurt in European action, limping off late on as Montpellier lost 24-27 at home to Exeter.

"Ankle ligament rupture, six to eight weeks," the 23-year-old announced on Twitter.

Camara and Lopez had expected to play the November internationals against world champions New Zealand on November 11 and 14, South Africa on November 18 and Japan seven days later.
