Clermont Auvergne prop Thomas Domingo has joined up with the France squad prior to Saturday's second Test against Argentina in Tucuman.

The 26-year-old has replaced Biarritz's Yvan Watremez, who picked up an injury on debut last weekend as Les Bleus lost out 23-20 after a late Pumas try from Manuel Montero in Cordoba.

Domingo has been absent from the Test stage since March 2011, having suffered a serious knee injury in the build-up to last year's Rugby World Cup.

The loose-head made his long-awaited playing return in Clermont Auvergne's Top 14 semi-final loss to Toulon on June 3 and was called up to the France squad on Sunday.

"There was this call on Sunday," he said. "I was very happy to come. It was one of my goals to return to the top as quickly as possible, which also allowed me to play the end of the season with Clermont."
