Dimitri Szarzewski: Out of Scotland clash

Sky Bet

France hooker Dimitri Szarzewski has been ruled out of next Saturday's Six Nations match with Scotland because of an ankle injury.

The Racing Metro star, 31, suffered the injury during Saturday's Top 14 victory over Castres.

He has been replaced in the squad by Perpignan hooker Guilhem Guirado, 27, who has played for France 18 times.

The loss of Szarzewski, who has played in all three Six Nations games this season, is a blow to France, who are seeking their first away victory in two years. Their last win away from home was against the Scots two years ago.
