Taofifenua gets maiden France call-up

Sebastien Taofifenua has been given a first call-up for France for Saturday's test against South Africa after Raphaël Chaume was ruled out through injury, the France team said on Monday.

The 25-year-old prop Taofifenua is the brother of international second row forward Romain Taofifenua.

He steps in instead of Chaume after the Clerment prop was injured in France's 38-18 defeat to New Zealand.

Chaume's injury came as he too was making his international debut when coming on as a late substitute at the Stade de France on Saturday. France's coaching staff did not specify what injury Chaume had suffered.

Taofifenua was selected for the France squad following a impressive display in the French Barbarian's 19-15 win over the Maori All Blacks on Friday.
