Toulouse winger Paul Marcon has been ruled out for the season after suffering a ruptured ACL. 

The 25-year-old left the field in last weekend’s pre-season friendly against Catalans, with scans now revealing that he has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his left knee.

Marcon will have surgery on Monday before taking on a rehabilitation programme.

A Toulouse statement read: “The whole club wishes him a good recovery and will be by his side throughout his convalescence to accompany him so that he finds the grounds and his level as quickly as possible.”

Marcon has made 71 appearances for Toulouse since 2017, scoring 42 tries. He has won four caps for France.
