Vern Cotter's Montpellier have suffered a blow ahead of their opening Champions Cup clash with Edinburgh after the news that Fijian winger Nemani Nadolo has been ruled out for four months.
Nadolo is expected to have surgery on his knee next week, with a cartilage problem forcing him to go under the knife. This is yet another set back for Nadolo who has just returned from injury having missed the opening rounds of the Top 14 through injury
Nadolo’s absence for such a large chunk of the European and Top 14 campaign is a major setback for Vern Cotter, who has had several injury problems to cope with in his side recently. Among those out at the moment are Timoci Nagusa, Aaron Cruden, Francois Steyn and Johan Goosen.
Nadolo will also miss Fiji's November Test against Scotland and France.
