France centre Wesley Fofana has been ruled out of the remainder of the Six Nations after breaking a rib against Wales.

Clermont, Fofana's club, have announced that the inside centre will miss between three to four weeks, ruling him out of the matches against Scotland and Ireland.

The 26-year-old has been a key figure so far for France and is likely to be replaced by Toulouse's rising star Gaël Fickou.

France's title hopes took a significant dent with a heavy 27-6 loss in Cardiff last Friday.
