French forwards coach Yannick Bru said on Sunday that Mas had suffered a "possible twisted" elbow in Saturday's defeat.

Lapandry, Bru added, was unlikely to play in the coming couple of weeks because of a "problem" with his collarbone.

The two players return to their clubs, Mas to Montpellier and Lapandry Clermont, later Sunday where their staste of health will be evaluated.
