France have added Castres hooker Brice Mach to their squad for the three-match tour of Australian in June.

The 28-year-old comes in as an injury replacement for Benjamin Kayser, who has been ruled out with cervical hernia.

Mach has two previous caps for France during the Six Nations but was yanked off at Murrayfield early in the second half after missing a series of line-out throws.

France are running low on stocks at hooker after Racing Métro's Dimitri Szarzewski was ruled out due to an operation on his ankle.

France squad (updated):

Forwards: Thomas Domingo, Alexandre Menini, Guihelm Guirado, Benjamin Kayser, Christophe Tolofua, Vincent Debaty, Nicolas Mas, Rabah Slimani, Yoann Maestri, Alexandre Flanquart, Sébastien Vahaamahina, Bernard Le Roux, Antoine Burban, Damien Chouly, Thierry Dusautoir, Yannick Nyanga, Florence Ouedraogo, Louis Picamoles.

Backs: Morgan Parra, Maxime Machenaud, Frédéric Michalak, Rémi Talès, Mathieu Bastareaud, Rémi Lamerat, Wesley Fofana, Gaël Fickou, Yoann Huget, Felix Le Bourhis, Maxime Médard, Brice Dulin, Hugo Bonneval.
