Good news, it seems, always comes in pairs, and the Ciel et Blanc this morning had two extremely encouraging up-dates from the sick-bay. The Irish fly-half Jonny Sexton and the Argentinean winger Juam Imhoff are both fit again and cleared to return to full contact training.
After suffering slight concussion in the Irish victory over France at Saint-Denis ten days ago, Jonny Sexton diligently followed the IRB concussion protocol. Although going on the three-day training camp in Aix-les-Bains he did not participate in last Saturday's game against Grenoble. But on Monday evening, after a final appointment with a specialist, Jonny was given the go-ahead to resume full training.
As for Juan Imhoff, unavailable snce the game against Castres, the Pumas' winger has also been given the green light to resume training.
Accordingly, the top points scorer of the recent Six Nations Championshop (66) and the flying winger who scored two tries in his last outing against the French champions, will both be available for this Saturday's derby against Stade Français, at Jean-Bouin.
