Paris - France will host South Africa, Argentina and Fiji in November Tests.

The Springboks will visit the Stade de France in Paris on November 10, with the French traveling to Lille to play Argentina at the Stade Pierre Mauroy one week later.

France then return to Paris for the Fiji game on November 24.

South Africa have won the past six meetings against France, including four last year.

The Springboks' 18-17 victory at the Stade de France in November heaped pressure on then-coach Guy Noves, who was fired soon thereafter.

France won 27-0 in Argentina two years ago in Tucuman, but the Pumas triumphed on their last trip to France, winning 18-13 in Paris in 2014.

France have won all nine Tests against Fiji, winning 40-15 the last time they met four years ago in Marseille.

France schedule for November:

Times to be confirmed

Saturday, November 10 at the Stade de France v South Africa

Saturday, November 17 at Pierre Mauroy Stadium in Lille v Argentina
