(Reuters) - Reigning Women's Six Nations champions England will be without captain Sarah Hunter for this weekend's Grand Slam decider against France due to a rib injury, the Rugby Football Union (FRU) said on Tuesday.

Hunter was injured in Sunday's dominant 69-0 victory over Ireland but will travel to France and support the squad in an off-field capacity, the RFU added.
