France's costly Grand slam dream
INJURY UPDATE: France prop Cyril Baille announced on Sunday that he will miss the Grand Slam-chasing side’s final two Six Nations matches with a right shoulder injury.
The 26-year-old, who has made 19 international appearances, was replaced at half-time of France’s 27-23 win over Wales in Cardiff on Saturday by Jean-Baptiste Gros.
“Unfortunately it’s the end of the tournament for me,” Baille tweeted.
“Dislocation of the right shoulder which will keep me off the pitch for a few weeks. I’ll be your first supporter for the last two games.”
