Florian Fritz (centre): Back in France line-up
Philippe Saint-Andre has made five changes to his France starting XV for Saturday's meeting with South Africa.
Florian Fritz, Yoann Huget, Wenceslas Lauret, Pascal Pape and Benjamin Kayser all come back into the side in the wake of Saturday's victory over Tonga.
And that leaves wing Sofiane Guitoune as the only member of the line-up who did not start this month's defeat to New Zealand.
Guitoune replaced Maxime Medard for the Tonga game and marked his debut with a try in a 38-18 success.

Lock Yoann Maestri is free to play in Paris despite his sending-off against the Tongans after a disciplinary panel ruled a red card was sufficient punishment for a striking offence.
Saint-Andre said: "This is a team which shows a lot of continuity from the first two games," said Saint-Andre.
"We are getting ourselves ready for a huge challenge taking on the second best team in the world. They put a lot of intensity into their games and are very physical. It will be a top-class match."
France: Dulin, Guitoune, Fritz, Fofana, Huget, Tales, Parra, Chouly, Lauret, Dusautoir, Maestri, Pape, Mas, Kayser, Forestier.
Replacements: Szarzewski, Domingo, Slimani, Vahaamahina, Nyanga, Doussain, Michalak, Bastareaud.
