INJURY UPDATE: With the November Tests in less than two weeks, France have recieved some good news.

French international centre Wesley Fofana, who has been sidelined for nine months with a ruptured Achilles tendon, will make his Clermont return on Saturday in the Top 14 clash against Stade Francais.

Fofana, 29 and capped 44 times by France, will start the game at the same Marcel-Michelin stadium where he suffered his season-ending injury in a European Cup tie against Exeter in January.

Meanwhile, Clermont will hand a senior debut to 18-year-old fly-half Dorian Lavernhe who will replace French international Camille Lopez who suffered a broken ankle in the win over Northampton last weekend and will be out for five months.
