South Africa hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle will be out "for a long time" after suffering a knee injury at the weekend.

Ralepelle was injured early in the second-half of Toulouse's Top 14 encounter with Biarritz on Saturday and was replaced by Christopher Tolofua. Toulouse will also be without injured Argentinean lock Patricio Albacete, French utility back Yann David and fly-half Lionel Beauxis for Saturday's away match at Castres, the coach revealed.

In addition, Toulouse players Louis Picamoles, Yannick Nyanga, Jean-Marc Doussain, Yoann Huget, Yoann Maestri and Maxime Medard have all been selected in the France squad for Friday's Six-Nations clash against Wales.
