Yoann Huget has been ruled out of the rest of the World Cup after tearing his ACL in France's opening win over Italy on Saturday.
The French winger suffered the injury in the second-half of the 32-10 win, and was left in tears on the sidelines after leaving the pitch.
Philippe Saint-André confirmed on Sunday morning that it was in fact an ACL tear as had been feared, and he will play no further part in the tournament.
A replacement for Huget will be named later on Sunday, with Maxime Médard and Rémy Grosso two possibilities.
Grosse pensée pour Yoann @Huget14. Un joueur exemplaire dans son investissement, grand mec. Nous sommes tous avec toi, bon rétablissement!
