ASM Clermont: bad news for Kotaro Matsushima

After a rather violent shoulder-to-shoulder collision with third row Tommy Reffel, Kotaro Matsushima was injured with his right arm in a sling. After the meeting, the staff feared a relatively serious shoulder injury.

The first exams this Monday do not inspire optimism. The Japanese back would suffer an acromio-clavicular dislocation in the right shoulder of a fairly high degree (there are four degrees in total).

possible surgery

If Kotaro Matsushima is at least grade 3 or 4, surgery may be indicated. In any case, the Clermontois should be absent from the field for several weeks.

Champions Cup: the best moments of the second leg ASM – Leicester to relive on video

Last season, Camille López suffered the same type of injury in the Champions Cup quarterfinal against Toulouse on April 11, 2021. The debutant only returned to competition on the last day of the Top 14, on June 5 against La Rochelle. He had not undergone any surgery at the time.

Additional tests are due on Tuesday to definitively refine the severity of Kotaro Matsushima’s injury.

Lee will probably lose

Fritz Lee is bleeding after a clash of heads with England center Guy Porter. A tackle without the ball that also earned the Leicester player a red card. The central third line of Clermont suffers a wound in the temple.

Fritz Lee should be out of the trip to Leicester. The ASM infirmary continues to fill week after week.
