Iturria out of France training camp for NZ tour
SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: France lock Arthur Iturria has pulled out of a training camp for a tour to New Zealand and been replaced by Clermont teammate Paul Jedrasiak, the French team announced.
Team management have also called up Clermont flanker Alexandre Lapandry as cover.
Although no explanation has been given for Iturria's absence, he was also replaced by Jedrasiak in the 41st minute of a 36-26 win over Toulouse on Saturday.
He is the second lock to pull out of the three-day camp at national rugby centre in Marcoussis near Paris after flanker Louis Picamoles, who has been replaced by Clermont's Judicael Cancoriet.
Picamoles will undergo surgery at the end of the season that will rule him out of the trip.
Racing 92 pair Virimi Vakatawa (groin) and Maxime Machenaud (knee ligaments) will also miss the trip, which will see France face the All Blacks on June 9, 16 and 23.
