• Fofana out of Six Nations opener

    France have suffered a blow ahead of this Saturday's Six Nations clash against Italy after Wesley Fofana was ruled out with a rib injury.

    The influential back took a blow to the ribs during Clermont's defeat to Montpellier in the Top 14 on Saturday, and faces a spell on the sidelines.

    Fofana has been replaced in France's squad by Teddy Thomas, who has only just made his return from injury.
