France fly-half Francois Trinh-Duc has withdrawn from their squad for the November internationals due to a thigh injury.
The 23-year-old picked up the injury while on domestic duty with Montpellier in their 29-18 Top 14 victory over Bayonne on Saturday.
He has been replaced in the squad by uncapped Racing Metro fly-half Jonathan Wisniewski, who was delighted by his call-up.
"I'm very proud to be called up, this is something I dreamed of since I was a kid," he told AP.
France open their November campaign against Fiji before meetings with Argentina and Australia.
