TOULOUSE, France, April 11 (AFP) - France captain Fabien Pelous is out of Toulouse's Heineken Cup semi-final with Leicester on April 24 after the lock strained knee ligaments in a weekend club match against Bourgoin.

"Fabien suffered a twisted internal lateral ligament in his right knee," club doctor Albert Sadacca said, adding he would be out for at least six weeks.

That diagnosis would also preclude Pelous from playing in the May 22 European Cup final should Toulouse win their semi-final.

Toulouse, outstanding in the previous week's European Cup quarter-final win over Northampton, went down 22-6 to Top 16 leaders Bourgoin on Saturday.
