Noves: France a team for the future

France have suffered an injury blow ahead of their Six Nations opener with Italy with star back Wesley Fofana ruled out.

Fofana picked up a rib injury in Clermont's loss at home to Montpellier at the weekend and there is yet to be a prognosis put on the time he will spend sidelined. Fofana has spent most of his rugby primarily in the centres but there were suggestions he was set for a role on the wings against Italy.

With Fofana sidelined, France coach Guy Noves has called up Racing 92's Teddy Thomas who only played his first rugby this season against Oyonnax at the weekend.
