Clermont captain Aurelien Rougerie is in doubt for the Six Nations with France after he badly sprained ankle in a shocking sliding tackle by Benjamin Boyet in weekend Top 14 action.

The injury is expected to keep Rougerie out of playing all rugby for up to six weeks which rules him out of the first two Six Nations rounds.

Rougerie sustained the injury when Boyet slid in, football style, and connected studs full on with the France international's right ankle in Clermont's 48-3 victory over Bayonne on Saturday.

The centre, who was cleared of any fracture, will notably miss two European Cup matches away to Exeter and Scarlets.
