Rugby: Dupont will miss Six Nations to play sevens at Paris Olympics

# Rugby: France’s 15-man captain, Antoine Dupont, will miss next year’s Six Nations in a bid to play sevens at the Paris Olympics. The scrumhalf, who also captains Toulouse, was named the Top 14 player of the season for the second time, but it’s not yet sure whether he will continue playing for the club while switching to sevens early next year. Eurosport reports Dupont’s absence from the Six Nations will be a blow for Test coach Fabian Galthié, who will now have to select a number nine and a captain.
