Medard and Dusatoir to miss out on Glasgow clash

French giants Toulouse will be without French internationals, fullback Maxime Medard and flanker Thierry Dusautoir for Saturday’s European Cup group match with Scottish side Glasgow, the club’s general manager Guy Noves announced on Tuesday.


Medard took a blow to his left leg during Friday’s 25-9 win over Dax in a Top 14 league encounter while Dusautoir missed the match because of a broken nose and Noves said he would be rested for the Group Five clash.


Medard is likely to be replaced by Clement Poitrenaud.


Toulouse will also give light training to hooker William Servat, who took several big hits during the Dax victory, French international flanker Yannick Nyanga, who is sick, and veteran Fabien Pelous.


Noves said he was looking for a victory – which would be their 16th successive victory in all competitions – that would sew up their place in the knockout stages.


Toulouse presently top Pool Five by two points from English side Bath with two matches remaining while Glasgow are bottom with four points and no hope of making the next round.
