France calls Picamoles into 6 Nations squad for England

PARIS (AP) -- Toulouse No. 8 Louis Picamoles has been called up to France's squad to replace the injured Wenceslas Lauret for the Six Nations match against England on Saturday.

Picamoles, who last played for France in a defeat to Australia last June, missed the start of the tournament after picking up a thigh injury.

The 28-year-old player will be joined at France's training camp by Jocelino Suta, Remi Tales, Marc Andreu and Yannick Nyanga, who did not feature in the 29-0 win in Italy over the weekend.

After back-to-back defeats to Wales and Ireland, France bounced back with the convincing win and has an outside chance of winning the tournament.

France coach Philippe Saint-Andre said that Jules Plisson, Camille Lopez and Eddy Ben Arous are doubtful with injuries sustained against the Italians.
