Rugby News: Yannick Nyanga

France have added Toulouse flanker Yannick Nyanga to their squad for the autumn internationals.

Nyanga earns his recall to the international set-up after Toulouse team-mate and France skipper Thierry Dusautoir was ruled out for six weeks with a knee injury.

Nyanga has not played for Les Bleus for five years - with the last of his 25 caps coming in the third-place play-off against Argentina at the 2007 Rugby World Cup.

France will take on Australia (November 10), Argentina (November 17) and Samoa (November 24), with Stade Francais lock Pascal Pape taking over as skipper.
