Louis Carbonel, injured, is forced to withdraw from the XV of France’s tour in Argentina. Joris Segonds replaces him.

Montpellier flyhalf Louis Carbonel, injured, had to withdraw from the tour of the XV of France, AFP learned on Monday from a source close to the player, confirming information from Midi Olympique. According to the specialized bi-weekly, Carbonel (25 years old, 5 caps), injured in the hamstring, should be replaced by his Stade français counterpart Joris Segonds (27 years old, 0 caps).

Segonds has just been eliminated in the semi-finals of the Top 14 by Bordeaux-Bègles (22-20). He missed a conversion at the very end of the match, which would have allowed the Parisian club to take UBB into overtime. Of the 42 players called up, only three players have more than twenty selections: Toulon pillar Jean-Baptiste Gros (25 years old, 27 selections), Toulon scrum half Baptiste Serin (30 years old, 44 selections) and the Lyon pillar Demba Bamba (26 years old, 26 selections).

The French XV leaves on Wednesday for South America, where the French will play two tests against the Argentine Pumas (July 6 and 13) and one against the Uruguayan Teros (July 10).
