France v Romania - Group D: Rugby World Cup 2015

France have suffered a setback after loosehead prop Eddy Ben Arous was ruled out for up to four weeks due to a fractured rib cartilage.

The 25-year-old will subsequently miss their next Six Nations fixture against Wales on February 26 as les Bleus look to make it three wins out of three.

It is as yet unknown who head coach Guy Novès will call in as a replacement, with forwards coach Yannick Bru revealing they won't rush the decision.

"We'll take our time to mull things over," said the former hooker.
