Lock Jerome Thion has been ruled out of France’s November Test matches against New Zealand and Argentina through injury.

The 28-year-old Biarritz second-row forward picked up a thigh problem in training on Tuesday and has been replaced in Les Bleus’ 22-man squad by Lionel Nallet, who plays for Castres.

France take on the All Blacks in Lyon on November 11, and play the same opponents a week later in Paris.

They will then entertain the Pumas at the Stade de France on November 25.
