France have made five changes for Saturday's Six Nations match against Wales as they look to end the competition on a high.
Coach Philippe Saint-Andre has also made one positional switch as he looks for the win that could possibly see Les Bleus finish second in the table.
A sizeable victory over Wales coupled with a narrow win for the Irish over England could see that happen but it will be tough to get a positive result in Cardiff with the men in red gunning for the Grand Slam.
But Saint-Andre has rung the changes as they look to bounce back from defeat to England last time out.
Prop Nicolas Mas, hooker Dimitri Szarzewski and scrum-half Julien Dupuy have been dropped from the starting line-up.
Mas is replaced by the Stade Francais tighthead David Attoub, while experienced Toulouse hooker William Servat is in for Szarzewski and Dimitri Yachvili comes in at scrum-half.
Vincent Clerc is injured and so Wesley Fofana, who has scored a try in all four of France's Six Nations games this season, switches from centre to wing.
Florian Fritz takes Fofana's place in midfield alongside Aurelien Rougerie, with Alexis Palisson handed a starting berth on the wing.
Morgan Parra will remain on the bench as France try to prevent Wales from landing their third Grand Slam in eight seasons.
