Sydney - France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has recalled versatile back Hugo Bonneval and flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo to the starting side for the third and final Test against Australia in Sydney, as Les Bleus bid to avoid a series sweep.
Beaten 6-0 in Melbourne on Saturday, France have already lost the series 2-0, but have retained a strong side for the match at Sydney Football Stadium with the hope of ending a 24-year losing streak on Australian soil.
Bonneval, who started at fullback in the first Test in Brisbane, replaces Maxime Medard on the wing, while Burkina Faso-born Ouedraogo starts openside flank, relegating Yannick Nyanga to the bench.
Captain Thierry Dusautoir, who played well at Melbourne's Docklands Stadium after being rested in Brisbane, retains the starting blindside flanker position.
