Pumas winger, Juan Imhoff had to leave the field in the first half of Racing Métro´s home match vs Toulouse on Saturday. While on the field he took a massive hit from 18 year old, 118KG French hooker Christopher Tolofua when attempting a tackle. The collision saw the larger man flatten the Argentine, who was playing fullback for Racing Métro, and the replay showed that it the players had a clash of heads while in contact. The young French hooker may well have a future on his hands at the international level after he had a solid match and was able to brush away defenders with ball in hand. Imhoff left the field two minutes after the incident.
Imhoff is expected to be match fit in time for Racing Métro´s next match, on February 10th vs strugglers Perpignan. There will be no Top 14 Orange matches next weekend due to round 17 being delayed to allow for the start of the 2012 Six Nations championship.
