Chouly returns to France squad

Date published: March 13 2017

France back-row Damien Chouly has returned to the squad ahead of Saturday's final Six Nations match against Wales.

Chouly, 31, has been sidelined with an ankle injury since France's win over Scotland back at the beginning of February.

The Clermont forward replaces Charles Ollivon, who has also suffered an ankle injury.

Antoine Dupont, who won his first cap on Saturday in Rome in the win over Italy, is retained in the squad in place of the injured Maxime Machenaud.
