Montpellier will wait until the last available moment before making a decision on the availability of skipper Fulgence Ouedraogo for Saturday's Top 14 Final against Toulouse.

The 24-year-old France flanker suffered a fractured hand in last weekend's semi-final win over Racing Metro, with Montpellier coach Fabien Galthie initially suggesting that it was "90%" likely that the openside would be forced to watch from the stands.

Ouedraogo did not train with his team-mates on Friday, but did confirm that a decision would not be taken until Saturday afternoon.

"Right now, I do not know," he said. "We will wait until the last moment to make a decision."

Montpellier go into the game as underdogs after Toulouse - champions 17 times in the past - finished the regular season at the top of the table and cruised to a victory over last season's champions Clermont Auvergne in the first semi-final.
