Racing will have to wait many months to take advantage of one of its star recruits. Injured during the quarter-final against England (24-30) on Sunday, Fijian centre Josua Tuisova suffers from a "serious sprain of the left knee" and will be away from the pitch for "several months", the Hauts-de-Seine club announced in a statement on Thursday.

Tuisova will undergo surgery "in the coming days," the club said. At 29 years old, the Fijian was one of the leaders of Racing's new project, after four very successful years spent in Lyon. The centre, mourning the loss of his 7-year-old son at the beginning of the month, is therefore expected to miss part of the Top 14 season, which resumes on October 29 with a trip to Montpellier.

Racing has a few other players in his position, such as Francis Saili, Olivier Klemenczak, the historic Henry Chavancy and the young Junior Tabuavou. Having just been eliminated from the World Cup, Gaël Fickou will be "too close" to challenge the MHR, according to the chairman of the management board, Laurent Travers. Other high-profile signings, such as South Africa's Siya Kolisi and England's Henry Arundell, who are still involved in the World Cup, would join the club later.
