The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
Michalak suffered a dislocated left shoulder in France’s 23-16 win over Scotland on March 16, having featured for Les Bleus in every one of their 2013 RBS 6 Nations fixtures before then.
However the 30-year-old appears to be nearing full fitness after being named on the bench for Toulon’s Heineken Cup semi-final clash against English outfit Saracens at Twickenham.
Toulon director of rugby Bernard Laporte hinted prior to the team announcement that the fly-half was in contention to be part of the squad before a final test.
And Michalak said: “It’s true that I wasn’t physically at my best when I played but they were important matches that I wanted to play.
“That lack of freshness has an impact on your thinking, with decision-making and the passing. We always have little knocks, you play with that.
“I know very few players in a squad who are playing at 100 per-cent.”
