France have received a huge blow ahead of the Six Nations following the news Camille Lopez is out for the rest of the season.

Fly-half Lopez, who plays for Perpignan, limped off against Munster last Sunday and now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines. He underwent a MRI scan on Thursday and Perpignan doctor Christian Fourniols has ruled him out for six months.

Perpignan have James Hook and Italy fly-half Tommy Allan in their ranks and their president Francois Riviere has confirmed there are no plans currently to replace Lopez, who has two caps for France, with a short-term signing.
