Released on injury prematurely against Montpellier on Tuesday evening, Yoram Moefana must undergo ankle surgery. He will miss the end of the season, UBB manager Christophe Urios announced on Friday.
The verdict is in and it is a blow to the UBB. His international center, revelation of the season, Yoram Moefana will not play the final stretch of the championship and the possible historic final stages to which the club aspires. Hit in the ankle against Montpellier, the center suffers from a sprained ankle with tearing of the ligament.
“It’s a painful injury because he has surgery on Monday and he finished the season,” lamented Urios, who recalled that his player had contracted a similar injury in December, but without tearing. The player is expected to be away for several months.
A big loss for the UBB
As powerful as he is explosive, the 20-year-old center from Wallis has established himself as a valuable blaster in the Bordeaux-Béglaise offensive line. Author of 7 tries in the Top 14 in 13 games, his performance did not escape the staff of the tricolor.
Selected twice with the XV of France during the Autumn Nations Cup against Italy and England, Moefana was one of the contenders for the next summer tour in Australia (three matches scheduled against the Wallabies from 7 to July 17).
