NEWS: France international Gabin Villiere is set for further ankle surgery which will rule the wing out of the Six Nations champions’ November internationals, a source close to the rugby player told AFP on Monday.

Villiere, 26, picked up the injury at the end of May during his team Toulon’s European Challenge Cup final defeat to Lyon, and underwent surgery in June.

But “some slight complications with the ligament which was completely broken” delayed his return, and ruled him out of France’s tour of Japan in July.

Capped 12 times for France, Villiere has not played a match for his club side this season.

He is expected to return at the end of November after France’s end-of-year tests against Australia, South Africa and Japan.
