Left out: Maxime Médard

France head coach Philippe Saint-André has left out five players, notably Maxime Médard, from his squad that will take on Italy in Paris on Sunday.

Médard joins Virgile Bruni, Maxime Mermoz, Marc Andreu and Geoffrey Palis in missing out of the 25-man group that is preparing for Round Two.

Hugo Bonneval seems set to earn a start on the wing for France or Saint-André may move last weekend's try-scoring hero Gaël Fickou to 11.
