French flyhalf Lopez out for five monthsSHARE
The 28-year-old Lopez, capped 16 times by France, was left writhing in agony after a sickening clash with Northampton's Nick Groom in the 23rd minute of the game.
The injury was later diagnosed as a broken left ankle which will sideline Lopez for "around five months", said coach Franck Azema.
Lopez had been expected to star in the November internationals against world champions New Zealand on November 11 and 14, South Africa on November 18 and Japan seven days later.
