Taofifenua gets France call-up for Bok Test

Bordeaux - Sebastien Taofifenua has been given a first call-up for France for Saturday's Test against South Africa after Raphal Chaume was ruled out through injury, the France team said on Monday.

The 25-year-old prop Taofifenua is the brother of international second row forward Romain Taofifenua.

Sebastien Taofifenua steps in for Chaume after the Clerment prop was injured in France's 38-18 defeat to New Zealand.

Chaume's injury came as he too was making his international debut when coming on as a late substitute at the Stade de France on Saturday.

France's coaching staff did not specify what injury Chaume had suffered.

Taofifenua was selected for the France squad following a impressive display in the French Barbarians' 19-15 win over the Maori All Blacks on Friday.
