France coach Philippe Saint-AndrÃ© has named uncapped Perpignan back Sofiane Guitoune and Stade FranÃ§ais prop Rabah Slimani in a 30-man training squad.
The group will assemble at French headquarters at Marcoussis outside Paris for a three-day camp from 22 to 25 September in preparation for the November internationals, when les Bleus will face New Zealand, Tonga and South Africa.
One notable absentee is Montpellier fly-half FranÃ§ois Trinh-Duc, who was also left out of the squad the toured New Zealand in June. Castres pivot RÃ©mi TalÃ¨s and Perpignan's Camille Lopez are preferred instead.
