PARIS (Reuters) - Scrumhalf Sebastien Bezy and centre Jonathan Danty were called up on Sunday as injury replacements for France as they begin preparations for the November tests, the French Rugby Federation said.

Toulouse’s Bezy replaced Morgan Parra, who injured his wrist in training with Clermont Auvergne last week and has been ruled out for a month.

Stade Francais midfielder Danty came in for Remi Lamerat who was carried off during the Top 14 clash between Clermont and Castres on Saturday after suffering a knee injury.

The 26-year-old Bezy won the last of his seven caps in Argentina two years ago while Danty, 26, won his four caps in 2016.

France host South Africa in Paris on Nov. 10 and Argentina in Lille before concluding their November programme at the Stade de France again against Fiji on Nov. 24.
