Toulouse head coach Ugo Mola has announced that 2021 World Rugby Player of the Year Antoine Dupont will not feature for the French club when they travel to England to face Wasps in the Champions Cup due to injury.

Although the severity of the scrum half’s condition is still unknown, the head coach stated: “He’s injured, we’ll see if he recovers but I don’t think he’ll play this weekend. The problem is that if we don’t say anything, the media make things up, he has little problems that aren’t necessarily serious.”

Antoine Dupont joins the list of Toulouse casualties that includes prop Charlie Faumuina, Australian second row Rory Arnold and Frenchman Julien Marchand.

On the other hand, with the Six Nations starting on February 6, the head coach of France, Fabien Galthié, has not yet given the squad list and will have to analyze the situation of his figure, who last year was not only the undisputed scrum half , if not that he was also the captain in the absence of Charles Ollivon in the November window.
