Pascal Papé and Sébastian Tillous-Borde were the only two players who missed out as the France squad reassembled in Marcoussis.

Les Bleus have enjoyed a week off following the conclusion of their second training camp in Tignes.

Now back in training ahead of their warm-up match at Twickenham against England on August 15, head coach Philippe Saint-André provided an update on Saturday.

 "We currently have 34 players on the field. The only two who are not there are Sébastien Tillous-Borde and Pascal Papé," he said.

"Sébastien took a blow on the knee and is now doing more physio work. Pascal felt a little sluggish during the penultimate training in Tignes and we did not want to take risks with him.

"The others were on the ground Friday afternoon and will be again this week.

"We have very few injures despite the high-intensity physical preparation the players have been through."
