Nyanga ruled out of France training camp

PARIS (AP) -- Toulouse flanker Yannick Nyanga has been replaced in France's 30-man training squad for the November tests by Virgile Bruni because of a groin injury.

Nyanga, who was injured over the weekend in the Top 14, underwent medical exams that ruled him out of a training camp starting on Sunday. Nyanga will be sidelined for about two weeks, the French federation said on Tuesday.

The uncapped Bruni is one of eight Toulon players called up by France coach Philippe Saint-Andre ahead of matches against Fiji, Australia and Argentina.

South African scrumhalf Rory Kockott and New Zealand prop Uini Atonio, who can qualify under the three-year residency rule, are among the players called up.
