An ankle injury has ruled France hooker Dimitri Szarzewski out of Saturday's Six Nations match with Scotland.
The 31-yearold suffered the injury on club duty for Racing Metro during Saturday's Top 14 victory over Castres.
He has been replaced in the squad by 27-year-old Perpignan hooker Guilhem Guirado,vwho has 18 international caps
The loss of Szarzewski, who has played in all three Six Nations games this season, is a blow to France, who are seeking their first away victory in two years. Their last win away from home was against the Scots two years ago.
