France have suffered two further injury blows after full-back Thomas Ramos and hooker Peato Mauvaka were ruled out of the Rugby World Cup.

Ramos picked up an ankle problem in the victory over the USA in midweek while Mauvaka felt pain in the build up to that encounter.

La Rochelle’s Vincent Rattez has replaced the back three player with Toulon’s Christopher Tolofua coming in for the 22-year-old front-rower.

Les Bleus had already seen prop Demba Bamba and centre Wesley Fofana withdraw from the squad in September.

Jacques Brunel’s men face Tonga in their third encounter in Pool C before they end the group stages with a game against Six Nations rivals England.
