"Fracture of the fibula, finished," the 27-year-old Rattez said on instagram.

Rattez started in place of Damian Penaud for France's opening 24-17 victory over England.

Against Italy, Rattez was helped off in the 77th minute, coach Fabien Galthie later saying that the La Rochelle winger has sustained a "nasty sprain".
