Paris - Flyhalf Francois Trinh-Duc is back in France's Six Nations squad for the match against Wales in Cardiff after a lengthy absence.

The Montpellier playmaker was not chosen by Philippe Saint-Andre for the World Cup last year, while injury kept him out of the reckoning for new coach Guy Noves for the first two games of this year's Six Nations, which brought wins over Italy and Ireland.

But the 29-year-old is fully fit again and will come in as backup to Jules Plisson, who impressed in the 10-9 win over Ireland last Saturday.

Noves has named a 31-strong squad for the February 26 Wales game with loosehead prop Xavier Chiocci also earning a callup.
