Machenaud in doubt for France’s November Tests

Racing-Metro scrum-half Maxime Machenaud is in doubt for France’s Autumn Internationals after he suffered a hand injury on the weekend.

Machenaud was playing for Racing in the Heineken Cup and sustained the blow in their 13-9 victory over Clermont on Sunday and will definitely miss Racing’s trip to Llanelli to play the Scarlets in the European Cup on Saturday, according to club coach Laurent Travers.

The 24-year-old Machenaud, capped 11 times, was named in France’s October 28-30 training squad, but risks missing Tests against New Zealand on November 9, Tonga (16) and South Africa (23).
