France will be without Thierry Dusautoir for Saturday's return match against England in Paris.

Stuart Lancaster's England beat France 24-19 at Twickenham on Saturday and will now travel to the Stade de France next weekend. England are expected to name a much-changed line-up for Saturday's game and France are also set to ring the changes with Philippe Saint-André likely to give the 12 players who missed last weekend's match a chance come Saturday.

But one man who is set to miss out is back-row Dusautoir. Sébastien Tillous-Borde and Pascal Pape were also injury doubts but both are set to be fit with Saint-André telling the press on Monday ""the only one who will not play [against England is] Thierry Dusautoir".

France hope to have Dusautoir fit for their match against Scotland on September 5.
