France captain Fabien Pelous and Jean-Baptiste Elissalde have been ruled out of next Saturday's Test against Argentina.

Pelous has still not overcome the rib injury that kept him out of last weekend's defeat against New Zealand, while scrum-half Elissalde [pictured] picked up a calf injury against the All Blacks.

Hooker Raphael Ibanez will continue to lead the side in Pelous' absence, while Pierre Mignoni replaces Elissalde in Les Bleus' squad.

France were well beaten in both Tests against New Zealand and will be hoping to get back to winning ways against the Pumas at Paris' Stade de Romania.
