France flank sustains broken bone in foot
INJURY UPDATE: France flank Francois Cros, a key cog in Fabien Galthie’s resurgent side, sustained a fracture of the second metatarsal in his right foot in the 35-27 Six Nations victory over Ireland.
“The verdict is in: fracture of the second metatarsal,” the Toulouse backrower, who is also studying podiatry, said on Instagram.
Cros, 26, sustained the injury in a tackle off the ball by Ireland’s Caelan Doris after 30 minutes of Saturday’s match at the Stade de France.
Doris was yellow-carded for the tackle after Cros had grubbered through close to the line. France were also awarded a penalty try.
