The 26-year-old Nakaitaci, who has eight caps for France, has not played since a 62-13 loss to New Zealand at last year's World Cup under former coach Philippe Saint-Andre.

Guy Noves, who replaced Saint-Andre after the World Cup, selected Nakaitaci in his 32-man squad on Sunday following his strong start to the season with Clermont.

France faces Samoa in Toulouse on Saturday and then takes on Australia and New Zealand at Stade de France during its Autumn campaign.
