France fly-half Yann Delaigue insists he has no problem with being relieved of kicking duties ahead of the RBS 6 Nations clash with England on Sunday.
Delaigue stuttered with the boot in the defending champions' 16-9 win over Scotland last weekend and returning scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili has been entrusted with goalkicking by France coach Bernard Laporte.
But the 31-year-old Delaigue, who rarely kicks for club side Castres, is determined to look on the bright side of being paired at half-back with the returning number nine and vowed to get his own kicking game in order.
"This is not a problem for me to start kicking again," he stressed.
"I only stopped a few months ago, when I arrived in Castres.
"I only had a 50% success rate against Scotland which explains Laporte's decision to choose Dimitri.
"We are still searching for the best possible French team. Our pairing is an opportunity to see what can happen."
