Bryan Habana will be out of rugby for two months after he sustained a thigh muscle injury during Toulon's Heineken Cup match against Exeter last weekend.

Coach Bernard Laporte confirmed Habana needs to have an operation next week to repair damage done to his thigh. He was forced off in the 37th minute of the match after pulling up sharply as he tried to accelerate.

It was initially reported he would be out for around three weeks but further tests revealed more serious damage than first appeared.
