Paris, March 12, 2018 (AFP) -France captain Guilhem Guirado will miss the last game of the Six Nations, against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, with a right knee injury.

The French Rugby Federation announced on Monday that the Toulon hooker had been ruled out after further examination of the knee he hurt against England on Saturday.

Pierre Bourgarit, an uncapped 20-year-old La Rochelle player, has been called into the squad.

Guirado was replaced in the 66th minute by Adrien Pelissie in the 22-16 defeat of England at the Stade de France.
