France have called up props Luc Ducalcon and Vincent Debaty as part of a 30-man squad for their next Six Nations game against Wales in Cardiff on Friday week.

The duo replace prop Rabah Slimani, who has been suspended for two weeks after being sent off in last Sunday's 30-10 win over Italy, and back row forward Bernard Le Roux, who must take a two week rest after suffering concussion in the Italian game.

Racing-Metro's Ducalcon, 30, has been capped 17 times but has not featured in a France squad since last June's tour of New Zealand.

Clermont's Belgian-born Debaty, 32, won the last of his 18 caps in the win over Tonga last November.

France go to Wales - who beat Italy but then lost to Ireland last Saturday - on the back of two wins which has raised expectations of their first Grand Slam since 2010.

France squad

Forwards: Thomas Domingo (Clermont), Yannick Forestier (Castres), Benjamin Kayser (Clermont), Dimitri Szarzewski (Racing-Metro), Vincent Debaty (Clermont), Luc Ducalcon (Racing-Metro), Nicolas Mas (Montpellier), Alexandre Flanquart (Stade Francais), Yoann Maestri (Toulouse), Pascal Pape (Stade Francais), Sebastien Vahaamahina (Perpignan), Virgile Bruni (Toulon), Ibrahim Diarra (Castres), Alexandre Lapandry (Clermont), Yannick Nyanga (Toulouse), Damien Chouly (Clermont), Louis Picamoles (Toulouse)

Backs: Jean-Marc Doussain (Toulouse), Maxime Machenaud (Racing-Metro), Jules Plisson (Stade Francais), Rémi Talès (Castres), Mathieu Bastareaud (Toulon), Gael Fickou (Toulouse), Wesley Fofana (Clermont), Maxime Mermoz (Toulon), Marc Andreu (Racing-Metro), Yoann Huget (Toulouse), Maxime Medard (Toulouse), Hugo Bonneval (Stade Francais), Brice Dulin (Castres)
