Clermont Auvergne prop Thomas Domingo has been called into France's Six Nations squad as injury cover for Sale prop Lionel Faure.
Faure is currently out with an injured calf, but was expected to be France's '23rd man' against Scotland at the Stade de France on Saturday. Domingo has been drafted in and will join up with the squad tomorrow.
Perpignan centre Maxime Mermoz has already arrived at the squad's training base in Marcoussis as cover for Florian Fritz, who will answer charges of alleged eye-gouging at a Six Nations disciplinary hearing in London later today.
Should the Toulouse centre be found guilty of the offence, for which he was cited following France's loss to Ireland, then Mermoz will slot onto the bench with Benoit Baby starting in midfield.
