France scrum-half Morgan Parra is a fresh injury concern for Philippe Saint-André ahead of this weekend's Test against Wales in Paris.

Parra, one of two scrum-halves in the 30-man squad named last week to train ahead of Saturday's game, took a knock to his shin playing for Clermont against Racing Métro over the weekend.

Sébastien Tillous-Borde is currently the other number nine option for France, with Rory Kockott left out of the squad last week thanks to a quadriceps injury after starting the first two Tests of the Six Nations.

Parra impressed off the bench for France in their defeat to Ireland in Round 2, his introduction seeming to spark les Bleus into life and leading to the only try of the game.

His fitness will now be closely monitored as France look to bounce back from that loss in Dublin.
