MARCOUSSIS, France (AP) — France hooker Christopher Tolofua will miss the Six Nations championship because of a neck injury.

The French Rugby Federation says 24-year-old Tolofua, who plays for English side Saracens and has seven test caps, will not be replaced in the squad.

France coach Jacques Brunel names his side Thursday for its Six Nations opener at home to Ireland on Feb. 3.
