Eben Etzebeth will be off the courts for three months

Toulon confirmed that Eben Etzebeth must be off the court for three months. The French club released a press release in which it confirmed concussion from the second row in the last match between England and Springboks out the November window.

Following specialist advice and in accordance with the French Top 14 concussion management protocol, the south african will be off the courts for 90 days, after receiving the same diagnosis for the third time in the year.

Thus, Toulon will lose a key piece in the remainder of 2021 and will have to resort to the replacement thinking of being able to have the best possible championship in the elite of French rugby.
