Paris - Racing Metro fullback Brice Dulin on Sunday was handed a recall to the France squad for the Six Nations opener against Scotland.

Dulin missed the November Test series of games after sustaining a stress fracture of his left shin with his place in the starting line-up going to South Africa-born Scott Spedding.

But he has been in fine form of late for Racing convincing coach Philippe Saint-Andre to bring him back in.

Also added to the squad were lock Alexandre Flanquart (Stade Franais), back-rowers Yannick Nyanga (Toulouse) and Wenceslas Lauret (Racing-Metro), centres Remi Lamerat (Castres) and Gal Fickou (Toulouse), and full-backs/wingers Sofiane Guitoune (Bordeaux-Begles) and Noa Nakaitaci (Clermont).

But there was no place for Toulon scrumhalf Sebastien Tillous-Borde who left the French training camp on Wednesday to get treatment with his club for a knee injury.

That leaves Saint-Andre with a choice between SA-born Rory Kockott and Morgan Parra to fill the No 9 shirt for the game against the Scots at the Stade de France on Saturday.
