France coach Bernard Laporte has called up a 22-man squad ahead of his side’s RBS 6 Nations opener against Scotland at Murrayfield on February 5.

Captain Fabien Pelous returns after serving a nine-week suspension for elbowing Brendan Cannon of Australia on November 5.

Winger Christophe Dominici and back-row Nicolas Brusque have earned recalls, while Bourgoin’s Benjamin Boyet is called up for the first time with Les Bleus.

The starting line-up will be unveiled on January 31.
