France wing Vincent Clerc is set to miss the June tour to New Zealand after picking up a knee injury while playing for Toulouse, he said on Monday.
The 31-year-old announced the news via Twitter, saying: "Unfortunately the news is not good... The injury will keep me out for several months. We'll meet again at the beginning of next season."
Clerc, the leading active try scorer for France, injured his right knee in the reigning Top 14 champions' 39-17 defeat at Clermont on Saturday, although he does not yet know the exact nature of the problem.
