RugbyU: France fly-half Trinh-Duc stretchered off

France fly-half Francois Trinh-Duc could be a serious doubt for the November tests after he was stretchered off with what appeared a serious leg injury in his club Montpellier's Top 14 clash with Oyonnax on Saturday.

The 27-year-old -- who was not selected for the unsuccessful tour of Australia in June but was in line for a recall for the November tests after appearing at a three day training camp -- suffered the injury when he collided with Oyonnax centre Hansell Pune in the 24th minute of the match.

France head coach Philippe Saint-Andre -- who desperately needs a good set of results in November after another miserable Six Nations -- will name his squad on October 19 for the matches with Fiji, Australia and Argentina.
