France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has made just two changes to his line-up for Saturday's final Test against Australia.

Having seen Les Bleus lose the series after 50-23 and 6-0 defeats, Saint-Andre has included Hugo Bonneval and Fulgence Ouedraogo in his starting XV for the Sydney clash.

Bonneval comes in on the wing for Maxime Medard, while Ouedraogo is preferred in the back row to the benched Yannick Nyanga.

Saint-Andre has shuffled his replacements, with Christopher Tolofua and Vincent Debaty providing front-row cover, with Maxime Machenaud also included.

"We want continuity," Saint-Andre said. "We were coherent and regular for 80 minutes in Melbourne." 

France: 15 Dulin, 14 Huget, 13 Bastareaud, 12 Fofana, 11 Bonneval, 10 Tales, 9 Parra, 1 Menini, 2 Guirado, 3 Slimani, 4 Flanquart, 5 Maestri, 6 Dusautoir (capt), 7 Ouedraogo, 8 Chouly.
Replacements: 16 Tolofua, 17 Debaty, 18 Mas, 19 Le Roux, 20 Picamoles, 21 Nyanga, 22 Machenaud, 23 Lamerat
