Marcoussis - South African-born back-row forward Antonie Claassen has been called up to the France three-day training camp ahead of next month's international Tests.

The 30-year-old Racing-Metro forward replaces Clermont captain Damien Chouly for the camp from Monday to Wednesday.

France play Fiji, Australia and Argentina in their November Tests.
