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.
