France winger Rattez to miss rest of Six Nations with injury

PARIS (AP) — France winger Vincent Rattez will miss the rest of the Six Nations after breaking a bone in his right leg against Italy.

"Fracture of the fibula, finished,” Rattez said in a post on his Instagram page on Tuesday.

The left winger scored a try in France's 24-17 win over England in round one, then played 77 minutes in the 35-22 victory over Italy on Sunday before leaving the field.

France, which leads the standings, plays defending champion Wales away in their third match on Feb. 22.
