France call up replacements for injured Le Roux and Fofana

France have lost Bernard Le Roux and Wesley Fofana to injury ahead of their November internationals.

Racing 92 flanker Le Roux is reported to have sustained a fractured cheekbone in the 44-12 European Champions Cup victory over Ulster on Saturday.

Fofana, meanwhile, has failed to recover sufficiently from a thigh issue to be available for the matches against South Africa, Argentina and Fiji.

24-year-old Lyon forward Felix Lambey and Toulouse back Yoann Huget have been added to Jacques Brunel’s squad as replacements.
