Les Bleues were the last team to lift the trophy before England’s dominant run began in 2006 and victory in Paris would put them in pole position to break Street’s side’s monopoly on the title.
Street has made three changes for the showdown with back-row partners Margaret Alphonsi and Sarah Hunter returning while Bristol’s Marlie Packer switches from open-side to blind-side flanker.
And after emphatic triumphs over Scotland, Italy and Wales this campaign, Street believes his players are well prepared for a potential championship decider.
“This is a strong England side ready for a very big game against a powerful French outfit that’ll be looking to upset our run,” said Street.
“We have performed well over the last three games but we are now at the business end of the championship and it is important that we have consistency in the starting 15.
“We took a young and inexperienced side to France in November and although we lost both games it was invaluable preparation for our three test series against New Zealand, which we went on to win, and obviously also for the RBS 6 Nations.
“Some of our younger players, the likes of Isabelle Noel Smith and Ceri Large, also had the opportunity to experience how tough it is playing in France and with them being selected for this game that is going to be a real heads up for them. They will know what they are now going to be up against.”
