France suffer Six Nations blow
INJURY UPDATE: France centre Jonathan Danty will miss the start of the Six Nations with a knee injury that could see him sidelined for at least two months.
The 30-year-old, capped 18 times, sustained the injury while tackling George Tilsley in La Rochelle’s 29-10 victory over Perpignan in the Top 14 on Saturday.
According to the rugby newspaper Midi-Olympique, Danty suffered a ruptured posterior cruciate ligament.
The centre has featured in two Top 14 matches and twice in the European Champions Cup for La Rochelle this season.
France kick off the defence of their Six Nations crown away to Italy on February 4 before taking on Ireland a week later.
