The Toulouse centre is one of five new faces in the team, with David Attoub coming in for the injured Nicolas Mas to make his first start for France.
With Julien Dupuy dropped, Dimitri Yachvili returns at scrum-half after some impressive displays for Biarritz where he will form a half-back partnership with Lionel Beauxis.
And on the other wing Toulon’s Alexis Palisson will make his first appearance for France since the World Cup final as he replaces Julien Malzieu.
Finally William Servat will start at hooker on his final appearance in the blue jersey after announcing he would be retiring at the end of the season to take over as forwards coach with his club Toulouse.
Young Clermont back three player Jean-Marcellin Buttin could also make his French debut in Cardiff after being named on the bench.
