Toulouse star out for at least three months
October 19, 2013
Toulouse have received a huge blow following the news their star No.10 Luke McAlister faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
McAlister was forced off in the 35th minute of their eventual 17-16 win over Saracens at Wembley on Friday and he confirmed via Twitter that he has torn his bicep. He is now likely to miss the rest of their Heineken Cup campaign and will be targeting a comeback in the New Year.
