France wing Gabin Villiere is set to miss the third round Six Nations game against Scotland following an injury.

Villiere sustained a blow on his face during the second round game against Ireland where he was replaced in the 52nd minute.

The 26-year-old now is set to miss the game on 26th February at Murrayfield Stadium but is expected to return for the fourth round game against Wales on 12th March.

Meanwhile, Charles Ollivon, who last played for the Les Bleus in March last year is undergoing a full training session as he is looking to make a comeback from a knee injury.

France are the only team to have not lost a game in the ongoing competition with two victories from as many matches and are positioned at the top of the table with nine points followed by England and Ireland at second and third respectively.
