©

Latest update : 2008-03-10

French rugby coach Marc Lievremont has made six changes to the team that beat Italy on Sunday, bringing back several experienced players to face Wales in Saturday's Six Nations decider at the Millennium Stadium.

France coach Marc Lievremont brought back several experienced players rather than calling up any newcomers when he named his 22-man squad to face Wales in Saturday's Six Nations decider at the Millennium Stadium.

 

Lievremont, who had included uncapped players each time for France's previous four outings in the tournament, made six changes to the squad he picked before Sunday's 25-13 win over Italy.

 
Scrumhalf Jean-Baptiste Elissalde, flyhalf David Skrela and fullback Cedric Heymans return, as well as hooker William Servat, flanker Thierry Dusautoir and number eight Elvis Vermeulen.
 
 
France will keep their crown if they beat undefeated Wales by more than 19 points or by just 19 points but with more tries than their final opponents in the tournament.
 
 
Squad:
 

Backs: Dimitri Yachvili, Jean-Baptiste Elissalde, Francois Trinh-Duc, David Skrela, Yannick Jauzion, Damien Traille, Vincent Clerc, Julien Malzieu, Anthony Floch, Cedric Heymans

 

Forwards: Fabien Barcella, Jean-Baptiste Poux, Nicolas Mas, William Servat, Dimitri Szarzewski, Jerome Thion, Lionel Nallet, Arnaud Mela, Julien Bonnaire, Thierry Dusautoir, Fulgence Ouedraogo, Elvis Vermeulen
