France overhaul for Paris

The 47-3 pounding France took against New Zealand has forced coach Bernard Laporte to make seven changes for the second Test at the Stade de France.

With captain Fabien Pelous injured, Castres lock Lionel Nallet will earn his 19th cap while Raphael Ibanez, in for Dimitri Szarzewski, will look to remedy their dire showing in the lineouts in Lyon.

Prop Sylvain Marconnet, destroyed by Carl Hayman in the first Test, is replaced by Olivier Milloud and Remy Martin starts at blindside flank.

Serge Betsen, earlier tipped to start at openside flank, has to be content with a spot on the bench.

In the backline, Jean-Baptiste Elissalde has replaced Dimitri Yachvilli at scrumhalf and Cedric Heymans earns a recall on the wing.

France: 15 Pepito Elhorga, 14 Aurelien Rougerie, 13 Florian Fritz, 12 Yannick Jauzion, 11 Cedric Heymans, 10 Damien Traille, 9 Jean-Baptiste Elissalde, 8 Elvis Vermeulen, 7 Remy Martin, 6 Julien Bonnaire, 5 Pascal Pape, 4 Lionel Nallet, 3 Pieter de Villiers, 2 Raphael Ibanez (captain), 1 Olivier Milloud.
Replacements: 16 Dimitri Szarzewski, 17 Sylvain Marconnet, 18 Loic Jacquet, 19 Serge Betsen, 20 Dimitri Yachvili, 21 David Marty, 22 Christophe Dominici.
