France have named Sebastien Taofifenua as a replacement for Eddy Ben Arous for their summer tour of New Zealand after the Racing 92 prop was injured  in the French Top 14 semi-final on Saturday.

Taofifenua played for Bordeaux-Begles this season but is moving to Toulon.

The 26-year-old Taofifenua was due to play for the French Barbarians but has been replaced in that squad by Castres’ Antoine Tichit.

France will meet the world champion All Blacks on June 9 in Auckland, June 16 in Wellington and June 23 in Dunedin. – Agence France-Presse
