Bernard Laporte has made one change to France's starting line-up for their final RBS 6 Nations Championship clash with Wales on Saturday.
Bourgoin back-rower Julien Bonnaire returns to the side in place of London Irish flanker Olivier Magne, who takes Bonnaire's place on the bench.
Bonnaire will team up with Thomas Lievremont and Yannick Nyanga in a powerful looking France back-row in the only change to the side that crushed England 31-6 in Paris last Sunday.
A victory for France at the Millennium Stadium would almost guarantee the RBS 6 Nations title for Laporte's men - barring a massive points win by Ireland over England at Twickenham.
Laporte expects Wales to be a dangerous proposition at the end of what has been a hugely disappointing tournament for the home team.
"We are expecting a tough game in Wales because they will be looking to finish the tournament on a high," Laporte said.
"The French players have plenty of motivation because they know that if they win, then they should win the tournament.
"We must concentrate on ourselves and make sure we hit top form."
France team manager Jo Maso added: "We have won 14 tournaments in 100 years so we know it's not easy to win the Six Nations.
"Wales might have struggled against Italy but they have plenty of fighting spirit. They have a strong defence and are dangerous with the ball in hand."
France team to face Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday:
T Castaignede (Saracens), A Rougerie (Clermont Auvergne), F Fritz (Toulouse), D Traille (Biarritz), C Dominici (Stade Francais); F Michalak (Toulouse), D Yachvili (Biarritz); S Marconnet (Stade Francais), R Ibanez (London Wasps), P De Villiers (Stade Francais), F Pelous (Toulouse), J Thion (Biarritz), Y Nyanga (Toulouse), T Lievremont (Biarritz), J Bonnaire (Bourgoin).

Ireland Women's skipper Niamh Briggs is still relishing her role as skipper in this year's Women's Six Nations, and insists the new blood brought in for the Championship has given her team a new lease of life.
