Castres flanker Ibrahim Diarra has been called in to the France squad to face Italy in the Six Nations on Sunday.

Diarra replaces Antoine Burban, who suffered a hamstring injury during the dramatic 26-24 win over England on Saturday.

The 30-year-old has only one cap to his name, which came back in 2008 against this weekend's opponent.

His addition takes Philippe Saint-Andre's squad back up to 30, which will be whittled down to 25 on Wednesday.
