"We'll have Antoine Burban's results tomorrow (Monday) morning," said Saint-Andre.

"We hope it will be ok. He has a hamstring problem, we'll see if it's a muscular problem and if so we'll call up another back-rower late morning tomorrow.

"The players will come back at 5.30pm (1630GMT on Monday) for a huge recovery session. We'll look at the bumps and bruises. Apart from Antonie, the others only have combat bruises."

Saint-Andre has called up a 30-man squad which will be reduced to 25 on Wednesday, freeing up five players to play for their clubs next weekend in a full Top 14 programme.

Gael Fickou's try three minutes from time set up fellow replacement Maxime Machenaud to kick the winning conversion against England.

Two Yoann Huget tries had helped France to a 16-3 lead after 23 minutes but England dominated the middle third of the match and scored 18 unanswered points on their way to lead 24-19 with time running out.
