(Reuters) - Six Nations leaders France will be without Vincent Rattez for the rest of the tournament after the wing broke his fibula in the weekend's 35-22 win over Italy.
Rattez was withdrawn in the dying stages of the match in Paris and needed to be helped off the pitch as 14-man France went on to top the table with two wins, having upset England in the first round.
The 27-year-old, who also scored a try against England, confirmed on social media that he had sustained a fracture.
France play defending champions Wales in the third round on Feb. 22 in Cardiff.
