Patricio Albacete has given Toulouse a boost by revealing that he only expects to be out of action for a fortnight with his shoulder problem.

The Argentine lock sustained the injury in Friday's Top 14 victory over Bayonne at the Stade Ernest Wallon and had to be replaced by Jean Bouilhou during the half-time interval.

It was initially thought by club medics that Albacete would be sidelined for a month but he declared after a training session on Monday that he could be back in half that time. "I don't think it's as serious as has been made out," the Pumas ace told AFP.
