Michalak ruled out
TOULON: Toulon's France international scrum-half Frederic Michalak has been ruled out of Saturday's key European Cup clash at English side Bath because of injury. The defending three-time champions travel to Bath for their final Pool 5 game on top of the table with a one-point lead over Wasps. Toulon coaching staff member Jacques Delmas described Michalak's injury as "less serious than expected" but the 33-year-old would nevertheless sit out the game. Just a week after returning from a hamstring injury picked at the World Cup, Michalak felt a pain in the back of his thigh during last weekend's 15-11 win over Wasps.
