France coach Marc Lievremont has replaced injured flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo with Ibrahim Diarra ahead of the test match against World Cup winner South Africa. Ouedraogo hurt his shoulder playing for Montpellier against Montauban on Thursday and was ruled out of playing against the Springboks after having an X-ray, the France team said. Ouedraogo has won 17 caps for Les Tricolores, while Diarra made his only appearance against Italy in the Six Nations in March, 2008. France plays South Africa on Friday in Toulouse, and then faces Samoa and New Zealand.
