Racing 92: Russell, the tile

Injured in the left knee against Italy with Scotland, Finn Russell will not only miss the last day of the 6 Nations Tournament. The Scottish opener, who will be absent between three and four weeks, will miss several matches for his club Racing 92, including the derby against Stade Français.

For Scotland, the pill shouldn’t be too hard to swallow. As the last day presents itself, the XV du Chardon has nothing more to hope for from this 6 Nations Tournament, except for third place in the standings, which it shares with England before hosting the Italy at Murrayfield on Saturday. From this perspective, of course, the absence of Finn Russell could be lacking for the Scots. But that’s about all. And it is especially Racing 92, the club of the opener injured in the left knee last weekend against Ireland, which can therefore expect to suffer from the absence of its number 10. Russell, touched in end of the match last Sunday against these Irish who are only one victory away from the title and the Grand Slam, will indeed be absent three weeks in the best case, four in the least optimistic of scenarios for the former player of the Glasgow Warriors, who had finished the match against Ireland with an imposing pocket of ice under a strap, also consistent and which had been placed on them earlier in the match.

Russell deprived of South Africa trip

Russell will therefore not only miss Scotland’s last outing in the Tournament, on Saturday against the Italians, but also several of Racing 92’s next matches. Starting with the derby against Stade Français, scheduled for March 26 at the Jean Bouin stadium. The opening half of the Racingmen will also miss the next European meeting of his team, on April 1 in South Africa against the Lions for the account of the round of 16. On the other hand, Russell should be back on time to be able to find the Ile-de-France team on the occasion of the arrival of Bordeaux-Bègles, on April 15 for the account of the 22nd day of Top 14. The last time that the UBB traveled to the capital on February 5 to challenge Stade Français, victory went to the Soldats Rose in a match without a try.
