Bernard Laporte has refused to get involved in Clive Woodward's tactical mind games as his French team bid to end England's RBS 6 Nations hopes.
If Laporte is concerned about his England counterpart's attempts to give his side additional options by including Sale fly-half Charlie Hodgson at centre for the Twickenham encounter, he is certainly not showing it.
"That's not a very important selection," said the 'The Kaiser', whose side effectively shackled playmaker Jonny Wilkinson as France won 20-15 at the Stade de France in the penultimate match of last season's RBS 6 Nations Championship.
"What is important is what France are going to do on the pitch and what the intentions of England will be against us.
"We know that Hodgson is a fly-half so probably he has a very good kicking game.
"Maybe on one side of the pitch Wilkinson will play centre with Hodgson at fly-half and at the other side it will be the other way round. But in the end, it is nothing. It's one number 10 and one centre."
