Brusque suffers ankle injury.
October 22, 1999
French back Nicolas Brusque suffered a sprained ankle during training on Thursday and was taken to hospital for x-rays, team officials have revealed.
The Pau wing, who was called into the squad as replacement for Thomas Castaignede, is not part of the team to play Argentina in Dublin on Sunday.
However the loss of another player through injury would further weaken the French party as they aim to reach the semi-finals for the third time in four tournaments.
