INJURY UPDATE: Bordeaux-Begles' France international prop Jefferson Poirot has been ruled out for three months with a leg injury and will miss the Six Nations, his club manager Raphaël Ibanez said. 

Poirot, capped eight times, tore a muscle in his right calf in a warm-up ahead of Friday's Top 14 clash against Lyon. 

The 24-year-old was on the bench for the Lyon game and was expected to make his comeback after damaging his right shoulder in France's match against Samoa on November 12.
