Paris - New Zealand lock Ali Williams will start Saturday's French Top 14 final in place of South African Danie Rossouw, the French Rugby League (LNR) revealed on Friday.

Williams replacing Roussow, who like Toulon captain Jonny Wilkinson will retire after the match, to play alongside South Africa legend Bakkies Botha in the second row was the only change from the Toulon line-up that started against Saracens in the Heineken Cup final in Cardiff last weekend.

Meanwhile, champions Castres have named the same side that started their semi-final victory over Montpellier two weeks ago.

Kick-off is at 21:00 SA time
