The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
As well as Fickou, the other uncapped players to get the nod are Eddy Ben Arous (Racing Metro), Yannick Forestier (Castres), Jocelino Suta (Toulon), Sebastien Vahaamahina (Perpignan), Pierrick Gunther (Toulon), Jules Plisson (Stade Francais) and Vincent Martin (Toulon).
Thierry Dusautoir continues as captain while Pascal Pape acts as his deputy but making way for some of the new faces in the squad are Aurelien Rougerie and Toulouse's Clement Poitrenaud.
“I wanted to stay true to what we've done in Argentina,” said Saint-Andre.
“We need to change generations. We were very happy the three centres we took to Argentina this summer.
“Aurelien just returned and has not played a lot of matches with Clermont.”
France begin their autumn internationals against Australia on November 10 before hosting Argentina and Samoa in the following two weeks.
