France’s bench lock, Florent Vanverberghe, has been ruled out with a hip injury. Cyril Cazeaux replaces him. Shame because Florent is a 20 year old lock who featured heavily in France’s super u20s. Cyril is a handy replacement, he kept Kane Douglas out of the starting XV at Bordeaux but isn’t as promising as Florent.
