France have called up flanker Yannick Nyanga for the November Tests as an injury replacement for his Toulouse team-mate and France skipper Thierry Dusautoir.
Dusautoir is expected to be out of action for around six weeks with a knee injury but will nevertheless join Philippe Saint-André's team when they gather at French headquarters at Marcoussis outside Paris from November 2.
Nyanga, who won the last of his 25 caps in the third-place play-off against Argentina at the 2007 World Cup, takes the place left open by Dusautoir in the 33-man squad.
Stade Français lock Pascal Papé will take over the captaincy.
Les Bleus' November international series kicks off against Australia on November 10, before matches against Argentina and Samoa on the following weekends.
