France head coach Fabien Galthie made two changes on Thursday to his side for this weekend’s Six Nations game against Ireland.
Toulouse flank Francois Cros comes in for Lyon’s Dylan Cretin, who drops to the bench to host the side third in the world rankings on Saturday.
Bordeaux-Begles’ 21-year-old Yoram Moefana replaces the injured Jonathan Danty in midfield, after he suffered an ankle injury in this past Sunday’s win over Italy.
Toulouse’s Thibaud Flament is among the substitutes as Galthie prefers an extra forward among his replacements.
