France will be without electric winger Teddy Thomas for their Six Nations decider with Ireland this weekend after he was ruled out with a hamstring injury.
Thomas was in fine form over the weekend, scoring a stunning try against Wales and has caused Ireland some serious problems in the past.
Starting fullback Anthony Bouthier could also miss the back in a further blow for Les Blues as he follows return-to-play protocols following a “a suspected concussion” at the weekend.
First-choice second-row Bernard le Roux also looks set to miss the game in Paris after he was cited for an elbow on Alun Wyn Jones.
