Dusautoir to miss France’s second RWC warm up

France captain Thierry Dusautoir will miss this Saturday’s World Cup warm-up
against England at the Stade de France due to an injury.

Dusautoir’s coach Philippe Saint-Andre confirmed on Monday that the France
captain will miss the second warm up between the teams for the same leg injury that kept him out of last week’s match.

The 33-year-old flanker, who sat out Saturday’s 19-14 loss to the world Cup
hosts at Twickenham, “will be at 100 percent on September 5” assured
Saint-Andre, the date of France’s final World Cup warm-up against Scotland.

Dusautoir suffered from severe bruising of the knee from training 10 days ago.

The World Cup begins on September 18 with the final on October 31 at Twickenham.
