France coach Bernard Laporte has made wholesale changes for Les Bleus’ World Cup clash against Namibia in Toulouse on Sunday.
Only three players – Cedric Heymans, Damien Traille and Pieter De Villiers - remain from the side shocked 17-12 by Argentina in Friday’s tournament opener.
Heymans moves from full-back to wing, with Clement Poitrenaud being handed the number 15 shirt.
There are also opportunities for fly-half Frederic Michalak, lock Sebastien Chabal, flanker Yannick Nyanga and number eight Julien Bonnaire.
An anticipated bonus point victory for France would keep them in the quarter-final hunt from Pool D, although Namibia proved tough nuts for Ireland to crack last weekend, losing just 32-17.
France team to play Namibia in Toulouse on Sunday: C Poitrenaud; V Clerc, D Marty, D Traille, C Heymans; F Michalak, J-B Elissalde; J-B Poux, D Szarzewski, P De Villiers, S Chabal, L Nallet, Y Nyanga, T Dusautoir, J Bonnaire,
Replacements: R Ibanez, N Mas, F Pelous, I Harinordoquy, L Beauxis, Y Jauzion, A Rougerie.
