Yachvili blow for France

France scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili has been ruled out of Saturday's RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy.

The Biarritz star is suffering from a thigh injury and will be replaced in the XV by Clermont-Auvergne's Morgan Parra, who started in the wins over Scotland and Ireland before being replaced by Yachvili for the defeat to England.

Montpellier's Julien Tomas has been called into the squad to provide cover and is likely to add to his two caps from the bench.
