INJURY UPDATE: English centre Matthew Hopper ruptured a knee ligament as Oyonnax drew with Clermont at the weekend and is unlikely to play again this season, the club confrimed.

Oyonnax said that the 32-year old, signed from Harlequins in the summer, will be out for "several months" and will undergo surgery next week.

Hopper suffered the injury in the 67th minute on Saturday as Oyonnax could only draw at home and remained in last place in the Top 14.
