France have recalled Jonathan Danty ahead of their Six Nations clash with Scotland.

Les Bleus' hopes of a second straight Grand Slam faded last week as they went down 32-19 in Dublin.

In-form Scotland head to Paris next week with a third straight win in their sights, but France will have centre Danty to call on.

Danty has won 18 caps for France and seemed set to be a key player for Fabien Galthie until he sustained a posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in late December.

He was expected to miss the entirety of the tournament, but in a boost to Galthie has recovered ahead of schedule.

Uini Atonio's suspension, meanwhile, means a call-up to the 42-man squad for Thomas Laclayat.
