Florian Fritz returns to the French team afterr a gap of two years. He'll be in the side which takes on Wales at the Millennium Stadium ...
Fritz will line up alongside Aurélien Rougerie in the centre with Wesley Fofana moving to the wing to cover for the injured Vincent Clerc.
The Toulouse centre is one of five changes, David Attoub comes in for the injured Nicolas Mas to make his first start for France. Dimitri Yachvili returns at scrum-half after some impressive displays for Biarritz where he will form a half-back partnership with Lionel Beauxis.
On the other wing Toulon’s Alexis Palisson will make his first appearance for France since the World Cup final as he replaces Julien Malzieu.
Finally William Servat will start at hooker on his final appearance after announcing he would be retiring at the end of the season to take over as forwards coach with his club Toulouse.
