Maxime Machenaud is restored to the scrum-half role, ahead of Clermont’s Morgan Parra, while Frédéric Michalak will continue at fly-half.
Pascal Papé will captain the side, as he did in the autumn, but Saint-André admitted it was a boost to have Dusautoir back in the side again.
He said: “We know Thierry’s qualities, he’s a tackler and a battering ram. The French team will need his experience and his ferocity.”
