France have chosen a 28-man training squad to prepare later this week for their March 8 Guinness Six Nations match away to Scotland. 


The rejuvenated French remain the only country capable of winning the Grand Slam following their round three win away to Wales and previously unbeaten Ireland’s comprehensive loss to England. 

Their big development heading into round four is the uncertainty of replacement hooker Camille Chat.

He shipped an injury during the Principality Stadium win and with his availability in doubt for Murrayfield, coach Fabien Galthie has opted to exclude him now rather than hope the injury comes right.   

Jefferson Poirot, the prop excluded for the Cardiff trip, is back in the mix following an injury to Cyril Baille. 

Also back is Clermont winger Damian Penaud, who missed the first tree rounds of the championship due to a pain in his calf.
