Dusautoir back to captain France

7:33 am on 10 May 2014

Thierry Dusautoir will return as captain of the French rugby side for their three-Test tour of Australia in June.

Dusautoir missed the Six Nations competition after suffering a serious bicep injury.

France finished the Six Nations in fourth place and will play a Wallabies team who have won their last four matches against northern hemisphere opposition.

The first test kicks off in Brisbane on June 7, with the second in Melbourne a week later and the final match in Sydney on June 21.
