Racing Métro have been struck by a blow after international second-row Luke Charteris was ruled out for six to eight weeks because of a broken foot.

The Welsh forward suffered the injury against Montpellier last weekend, with the problem set to sideline him for at least six games in the Top 14.

Charteris joined Racing from USAP and is a key squad member for Wales coach Warren Gatland, whose men take on Australia on November 8.
