France center Fofana ruled out of Rugby World Cup

TOKYO (AP) — France center Wesley Fofana has been ruled out of the Rugby World Cup because of a thigh injury. Fofana sustained the injury in a warmup win over Italy last month. The French Rugby Federation said 21-year-old Pierre-Louis Barassi will come into the squad as a replacement.

France began its Pool C campaign at the World Cup in Japan with a 23-21 win over Argentina on Saturday. England, Tonga and the United States are the other teams in Pool C.
