Lievremont rings changes for Wallabies

France have made a number of changes for the one-off Test against the Wallabies in Sydney on Saturday.

Coach Marc Lievremont has reshuffled his backline and will start with a completely new 9-10 combination in Dimitri Yachvili and Lionel Beauxis.

Five players have returned home with injury but the French will still field a strong side as they seek their first Test win on Australian soil since 1990.

France will not name their reserves bench until Friday.

France – 15 Damien Traille, 14 Maxime Medard, 13 Florian Fritz, 12 Maxime Mermoz, 11 Cedric Heymans, 10 Lionel Beauxis, 9 Dimitri Yachvili, 8 Julien Puricelli, 7 Fulgence Ouedraogo, 6 Thierry Dusautoir, 5 Romain Millo-Chluski, 4 Pascal Pape, 3 Sylvain Marconnet, 2 Dimitri Szarzewski, 1 Fabien Barcella.
