Yoan Maestri: Has recovered from a back injury
France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has made just one change to his starting XV for the Test against Argentina on Saturday.
Yoan Maestri, who missed the 33-6 rout of Australia with a back problem, returns to the second row in Lille in place of Jocelino Suto.
Otherwise, Saint-Andre has kept faith with the same team that embarrassed the Wallabies, with man-of-the-match Frederic Michalak retained at fly-half.
"It's a key match for us," said Saint-Andre. We know the Argentines. They've perhaps never been playing as well in November than this year.
"We want to see whether we're able to win two very, very high-level matches in succession. It's an enormous challenge for the staff and the players.
"In French rugby we are used to producing great performances worth 18 out of 20 and to follow up with an eight out of 20.
"What we are aiming to do now is to be more consistent - to put in a good week's training and not to get carried away. To reproduce the same physicality and the same realism."
France: Dulin, Fofana, Fritz, Mermoz, Clerc, Michalak, Machenaud, Picamoles, Ouedraogo, Nyanga, Maestri, Pape, Mas, Szarzewski, Forestier.
Replacements: Kayser, Domingo, Debaty, Suta, Chouly, Parra, Trinh-Duc, Huget.
