Replacement halfback for French tourists

7:36 am on 27 May 2013

The French halfback Jean-Marc Doussain is facing the rare prospect of winning his first four international rugby caps against the All Blacks after being called in to the France squad as a replacement for the injured Morgan Parra.

Doussain, who won his only cap when he replaced Dimitri Yachvili late in the 2011 World Cup final, could win his next three against the All Blacks in the June series in Auckland, Christchurch and New Plymouth.
