Another French star out on year-end Tests
INJURY UPDATE: France will have to contest the upcoming November Tests without Morgan Parra, after the Clermont scrumhalf pulled out with a wrist injury.
Parra’s place will be filled by Toulouse’s Sebastien Bezy, the French rugby federation announced on Saturday.
His defection is a significant blow to France coach Jacques Brunel who was hoping to link him up with his Top 14 teammate, fly-half Camille Lopez.
Already injured and out of contention are centre Wesley Fofana and forward Bernard Le Roux.
France faces South Africa on November 10, followed by Argentina a week later and Fiji on November 24.
