France coach Bernard Laporte has made eight changes to his starting XV for Saturday's second Test against South Africa.
Les Bleus drew 30-30 with the Springboks last weekend and Laporte had announced that the team would be rotated in the second match in a bid to sustain competition between the players.
Hooker William Servat and prop Pieter De Villiers are both back in the pack while lock Thibault Privat replaces Romain Millo-Chluski and flanker Remy Martin will start an international match for the first time in place of Olivier Magne.
In the backs scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili returns and will take over the captaincy as well.
There are also recalls for centre Damien Traille, winger Vincent Clerc and full-back Nicolas Brusque.
France team to play South Africa: N Brusque (Biarritz); V Clerc (Toulouse), Y Jauzion (Toulouse), D Traille (Biarritz), C Heymans (Toulouse); F Michalak (Toulouse), D Yachvili (Biarritz); S Marconnet (Stade Francais), W Servat (Toulouse), P De Villiers (Stade Francais), T Privat (Clermont), P Pape (Toulouse), Y Nyanga (Beziers), R Martin (Stade Francais), J Bonnaire (Bourgoin).
Replacements: S Bruno (Sale), O Milloud (Bourgoin), G Lamboley (Toulouse), O Magne (Clermont), J Elissalde (Toulouse), B Baby (Toulouse), J Laharrague (Brive).
The RBS 6 Nations Championship 2015 was not poised to go down as one of the more "vintage" Championships, though there was great anticipation as the action headed into its final day. What transpired was something that nobody could foresee: "The Greatest Day in Rugby's Greatest Championship."
