His return is expected on Sunday.

Antoine Dupont left this Thursday the XV of France, on an internship in Capbreton (Landes) to prepare for the start of the Six Nations Tournament, on February 5 in Rome against Italy.

Several media, including Rugbyrama, evoke family reasons to explain the departure of the captain of the Blues, spared Tuesday but who had participated in Wednesday's training.

The Stade Toulousain scrum-half is replaced in the squad by Lyonnais Baptiste Couilloud.

The Blues are already deprived of two number 9 on injury: Maxime Lucu (UBB), usual understudy of Dupont in selection, and Léo Coly (Montpellier).
