France have made five changes to the 22-man squad that beat Ireland in the RBS 6 Nations Championship for next weekend's match against Wales.
Prop Nicolas Mas, hooker Benoit August, lock Gregory Lamboley, number eight Elvis Vermeulen and winger Aurelien Rougerie have been drafted into the Les Bleus party for Saturday's clash at the Stade de France.
Pieter De Villiers, Sebastien Bruno, Pascal Pape, Sebastien Chabal, who picked up an injury playing for Sale against Wasps on Sunday, and Cedric Heymans make way respectively.
None of the five newcomers have played a part in the RBS 6 Nations so far.
Wasps hooker Raphael Ibanez will continue as captain in the absence of regular skipper Fabien Pelous, who is out with an ankle injury.
Head coach Bernard Laporte will on Tuesday announce his starting XV for the game.
France have won both their opening matches in the tournament, beating Italy 39-3 and defeating Ireland 20-17.
