Paris - France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has made two changes to the squad to face Ireland, with his team still searching for their first win in the Six Nations.
Perpignan lock Sebastien Vahaamahina, who has just one cap, could make his tournament debut after replacing Jocelino Suta. Toulouse wing Maxime Medard comes in for Benjamin Fall.
Pre-tournament favourites France have started with losses against Italy, Wales and England.
They could finish with the wooden spoon for the first time since 1957.
Forwards: Vincent Debaty, Thomas Domingo, Benjamin Kayser, Dimitri Szarzewski, Luc Ducalcon, Nicolas Mas, Yoann Maestri, Christophe Samson, Sebastien Vahaamahina, Antoine Claassen, Thierry Dusautoir (captain), Yannick Nyanga, Louis Picamoles.
Backs: Maxime Machenaud, Morgan Parra, Frederic Michalak, Francois Trinh-Duc, Mathieu Bastareaud, Vincent Clerc, Wesley Fofana, Florian Fritz, Yoann Huget, Maxime Medard.
