Ruled out: Pascal Papé

France captain Pascal Papé will play no further part in this year's Six Nations due to a back injury.

The Stade Français lock was originally scheduled to return during the middle of the tournament but has now admitted that he hopes to return to action for Stade against Toulouse on March 23rd in the Top 14, missing the final two matches of the Six Nations against Ireland and Scotland.

Thierry Dusautoir has taken over the captaincy in Papé's absence, with France bottom of the Six Nations table after three defeats in their first three matches.
