France have called up Racing Metro loose forward Wenceslas Lauret as an injury replacement for Montpellier flank Fulgence Ouedraogo.

Ouedraogo will miss France coach Philippe Saint-André's three-day training camp early next week due to the same shoulder injury that has ruled him out of Friday's Top 14 clash with Bayonne.

24-year-old Lauret, who won three caps under former coach Marc Lièvremont whilst still playing for Biarritz, joined Racing during the offseason and has seen international prospects revived.

The 30-man Bleus squad will gather at French headquarters at Marcoussis outside Paris from 28 to 30 October in preparation for next month's Tests against New Zealand, Tonga and South Africa.
