Les Bleus reel in Dupuy

Scrumhalf Julien Dupuy received a call-up to France’s Six Nations squad for their Test against Scotland next weekend.

Stade Francais No 9 Dupuy has replaced injured halfback Dimitri Yachvili in coach Philippe Saint-Andre’s match group of 23. Yachvili suffered a back strain in France’s 30-12 win over Italy and was ruled out of the second-round fixture against Ireland last weekend, which was postponed because of dangerous conditions.
