Fulgence Ouedraogo dropped badly in the lineout

Fulgence Ouedraogo dropped badly in the lineout

On the weekend I watched the Top 14 meeting between Montpellier and Biarritz Olympique. The game was a hard fought and tight encounter, but just before the end young flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo suffered a bizarre injury in the lineout.

Ouedraogo is Burkina Faso born and another in the line of African born flankers that turn out for France. He made his debut for his country, France, on the New Zealand tour of last year. He is a strong ball carrier and excellent at the breakdown. He'll no doubt be a star performer for France in the future and is most definitely going to feature strongly in this years Six Nations.

His Montpellier team mates didn't do him any favours though when he got tossed up really high in the lineout, but then not brought back down to ground safely.

This is a lesson in how NOT to support your lineout jumpers. Ouch.
