Nice - France have made four changes for their second Rugby World Cup warm-up match against Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday with captain Guilhem Guirado returning to the side after injury.

Following Saturday's 32-3 win over Scotland in Nice, head coach Jacques Brunel also brings in lock Felix Lambey, backrower Arthur Iturria and fullback Thomas Ramos.

Brunel named the team 48 hours in advance "to allow for best possible preparations time for the match," according to a statement from the team management.

Guirado replaces Camille Chat, while Lambey takes over from Paul Gabrillagues, who is at risk of a suspension after being at fault for dangerous play in Saturday's Test.

Iturria comes back for François Cros, who earned his first cap against Scotland, while goalkicker Ramos replaces veteran Maxime Medard who scored two tries on Saturday.
