Paris - France have made one change for their final Six Nations match this season, against Wales on Saturday, with coach Guy Noves bringing Sebastien Vahaamahina back into the second row.

Vahaamahina missed Les Bleus' previous outing, a 40-18 victory over Italy in Rome last weekend, with a back injury.

His return sees Julien Le Devedec drop to the bench in place of Paul Jedrasiak, with backrower Damien Chouly and hooker Camille Chat also handed spots among the replacements at the expense of South African-born Bernard Le Roux and the injured Christopher Tolofua respectively.
