Paris - France have added two new players to their squad for the upcoming three-Test series against the Springboks.

Clermont lock Paul Jedrasiak and Toulon flyhalf Francois Trinh-Duc will join the squad in Pretoria this week.

Both players have been called up following Sunday's Top 14 final, which Clermont won 22-16 at the Stade de France.

Jedrasiak replaces his Clermont team-mate Arthur Iturria, who went off in the final due to injury.

Trinh-Duc meanwhile comes in for Camille Lopez, who it was announced on Saturday would not be taking part in the series in South Africa.

Les Bleus face the Springboks in the first Test at Loftus Versfeld this Saturday (17:00 kick-off).
