Harinordoquy returns after six-month absence
BIARRITZ, France (AFP) –
French international forward Imanol Harinordoquy will return to action after six months out with a knee injury when his Biarritz side tackle Bordeaux on Saturday.
The 32-year-old back-rower will be amongst the replacements for the Top 14 match.
“It’s the first time that an injury has kept me out for so long,” said the veteran of 82 internationals.
“I am used to having more short-term injuries. I knew that I was going to come back, but this time I was asking myself more questions than usual.”
Harinordoquy’s last match was his team’s victory over Toulon in the European Challenge Cup final on May 18.
