Paris - Springbok wing Bryan Habana will be sidelined for around three weeks after suffering a thigh muscle strain in Toulon's 14-9 European Cup win at Exeter on Saturday.

"Thigh strain for Bryan Habana. This normally takes around three weeks recovery. Wishing him a speedy recovery," Toulon said on Twitter.

Habana, who was making his debut in the tournament, was replaced in the 37th minute after pulling up with the injury.

The 30-year-old will miss the European Cup return match with Exeter next Saturday as well as the Top 14 meetings with Montpellier and Racing-Metro.
