French coach Philippe Saint-Andre has made five changes to his side to face unbeaten Wales on the final day of the Six Nations tournament in Cardiff on Saturday.
Prop David Attoub and hooker William Servat come into the front row in a pack that is otherwise unchanged from the side that lost 22-24 to England last weekend, wrecking French hopes of defending the title they won last year.
Dimitri Yachvili gets a recall at scrumhalf replacing the disappointing Julien Dupuy, while Florian Fritz is in at centre and Alexis Palisson comes back in on the wing.
Wesley Fofana, who has scored tries in each of France's four games so far in the tournament, switches to the wing to make way for Fritz.
France have no hope of winning the Six Nations title after two wins, one draw and one defeat, while their opponents will be aiming to complete the Grand Slam.
France: 15 Clement Poitrenaud, 14 Wesley Fofana, 13 Aurelien Rougerie, 12 Florian Fritz, 11 Alexis Palisson, 10 Lionel Beauxis, 9 Dimitri Yachvili, 8 Imanol Harinordoquy, 7 Julien Bonnaire, 6 Thierry Dusautoir (captain), 5 Yoann Maestri, 4 Pascal Papé, 3 David Attoub, 2 William Servat, 1 Jean-Baptiste Poux.
Replacements: 16 Dimitri Szarzewski, 17 Vincent Debaty, 18 Julien Pierre, 19 Louis Picamoles, 20 Morgan Parra, 21 Francois Trinh-Duc, 22 Jean-Marcellin Buttin.
