Dusautoir out for up to six weeks

France rugby captain Thierry Dusautoir will be out for up to six weeks after injuring his knee in European Cup action for Toulouse.

Dusautoir, capped 54 times for France, twisted his knee in a tackle in Toulouse's 33-21 victory over Treviso on Saturday.

The injury means the flanker will likely play a minor role in Les Bleus' autumn internationals, which kick off against Australia on November 10, before matches against Argentina and Samoa on the following weekends.
