Michalak back in France squad

France manager Philippe Saint-Andre recalled Sharks fly-half Frederic Michalak when he named his 28-man squad for next month's two-Test tour of Argentina on Thursday.


Michalak returns to the side for the first time since a Six Nations game against Wales in 2010, although Saint-Andre did opt to rest captain Thierry Dusautoir in a squad that includes nine fresh faces.

France will face Argentina on June 16 and 23 in Cordoba and Tucuman respectively.
