Called up: Marc Andreu

France coach Philippe Saint-André has called up Racing-Métro wing Marc Andreu as a replacement for suspended scrum-half Morgan Parra.

The Clermont scrum-half has been given a two-match ban for a headbutt meaning he will miss next week's clash with Scotland at Murrayfield.

With Maxime Machenaud and Jean-Marc Doussain already in the squad, Saint-André has chosen not to add another scrum-half, instead turning to 28-year-old speedster Andreu, who has 7 caps.
