Scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili, centre Aurelien Rougerie and flanker Julien Bonnaire are also named in the starting XV despite being injury worries early this week.

France: Maxime Medard, Vincent Clerc, Aurelien Rougerie, Maxime Mermoz, Alexis Palisson, Morgan Parra, Dimitri Yachvili, Imanol Harinordoquy, Julien Bonnaire, Thierry Dusautoir (c), Lionel Nallet, Pascal Pape, Nicolas Mas, William Servat, Jean-Baptiste Poux
