Fofana's Six Nations farewell ruined
Clermont Auvergne centre Fofana reportedly sustained an injury during training on Friday and has been replaced in the starting XV by Geoffrey Doumayrou.
The 31-year-old, who will retire from international rugby after this year’s World Cup, started Les Bleus’ opening 24-19 defeat against Wales but has not featured in the Six Nations since.
France will hope to round off a disappointing campaign with a win in Rome as they look to beat Scotland to fourth place, with Italy already consigned to the wooden spoon.
