Simone out for six weeks
November 26, 1999
Eduardo Simone, Bristol's Argentinan centre has damaged cruciate ligaments in his knee and will be out of action for six weeks.
Simone sustained the injury during the European Shield match against Dax in France last weekend.
He told Scrum: "I 'm realy sad, I only play three games for my new club before that. And now I will wait until the new year to come back".
Capped 30 times by the Pumas the powerful centre threequarter has been a regular in the Bristol line-up since the end of the World Cup.
The tone was set early on in Dublin as a more clinical Ireland made England pay. All is not lost, however, argues Phil Vickery
