But a string of impressive performances for his club in the Top 14 coupled with a re-shuffle from new France head coach Philippe Saint Andre has seen the 28-year-old restored to the starting line-up.
Fritz will line up alongside Aurelien Rougerie in the centres on Saturday while the in-form Wesley Fofana switches to the wing in place of the injured Vincent Clerc.
But despite a stop-start international career thus far Fritz is refusing to read too much into his re-selection, while also insisting he is far from France’s saviour after a disappointing Championship.
“Above all I don’t think of myself as some sort of saviour,” Fritz told L’Equipe. “And this selection isn’t something I’m looking at as a last chance either.
“I'm not over thinking things, I'm trying to integrate myself into the squad as well as possible, giving my all and trying to take any chance that comes my way.
“I’m really pleased to be back, it’s a little bit of a surprise considering I didn’t make the initial squad for the Championship so I really wasn’t expecting it.
“But it’s nice to be picked and to know that you’re still under consideration, I did think about it a little bit but above all it’s important to make sure you’re performing for your club.
“I never thought that my chance had been and gone, there’s always going to be a lot of competition but I kept working hard at Toulouse hence why I'm back in contention now.”
