France hooker Benjamin Kayser will miss the rest of the Six Nations after suffering a serious knee injury in Clermont's 16-13 defeat to Grenoble.

Kayser partially ruptured his right knee ligament during the Top 14 encounter, which will frustrate France boss Philippe Saint-Andre after he asked clubs not to field players who started in both Six Nations games against England and Italy. Clubs had not been happy with the request and Clermont may well have thought that Kayser was fine to play as he was only a replacement for the 30-10 victory over Italy.

"Injured at the end of the Grenoble match, Benjamin Kayser suffered a partial rupture of the internal ligament of his right knee," Clermont said in a statement.

"The injury will see him ruled out of action for between five to six weeks and bring to a premature end his interest in the Six Nations."
