France hooker William Servat has been named in the France squad for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy in Rome.
Servat missed the 26-19 victory over Ireland with a knee injury but returns at the expense of Dimitri Swarzewski, as coach Bernard Laporte makes just one change following a fine Les Blues performance in Dublin.
''We wanted to keep the same group as that which beat Ireland because they did very well,'' said team manager Jo Maso.
Laporte and Maso will announce their starting line-up ahead of the Italy match on Tuesday morning in Marcoussis.
France squad to face Italy:
Forwards: S Bruno (Sale), W Servat (Sale), S Marconnet (Stade Francais), N Mas (Perpignan), P De Villiers (Stade Francais), F Pelous (Toulouse, captain), J Thion (Biarritz), P Pape (Bourgoin), S Betsen (Biarritz), J Bonnaire (Bourgoin), Y Nyanga (Beziers), G Lamboley (Toulouse).
Backs: D Yachvili (Biarritz), P Mignoni (Clermont), Y Delaigue (Castres), F Michalak (Toulouse), B Baby (Toulouse), Y Jauzion (Toulouse), D Marty (Perpignan), C Heymans (Toulouse), C Dominici (Stade Francais), J Laharrague (Brive).
