INJURY UPDATE: Injured France captain Guilhem Guirado is uncertain to face Wales in the Six Nations at the weekend with uncapped Pierre Bourgarit called up as cover on Monday.

Guirado could miss the clash in Cardiff on Saturday with a right knee injury. He was replaced in the 66th minute by Adrien Pelissie in the 22-16 victory over England at the Stade de France on Saturday.

Arthur Iturria meanwhile became the first of eight players dropped for a night out in Edinburgh to return to the French squad.

Iturria replaces another second row, Romain Taofifenua, who injured a thigh in training on Thursday, missed the game against England and will not be fit to face the Welsh.

Iturria, a 23-year-old Clermont player was dropped following a late night out immediately after France lost in Scotland on February 11.
