Here are the men who will try this Saturday at the Stade de France (kick off 9 p.m. on France 2) to bring France back to the concert of the great nations of world rugby.

A club she had deserted for a few years.

The staff of the XV of France had to deal with the hamstring injury of winger Teddy Thomas.

To replace the player of Racing 92 author of a magnificent last try against Wales last Saturday (38-21), the coaches opted for safety by sliding Gaël Fickou to the wing as against Wales in the last month of February.

Vincent passes to the center

"We earn our place in training," said coach Fabien Galthié.

And the session pushed to Marcoussis on Wednesday convinced him to slide Fickou from center to wing.

"He has this experience", concluded Galthié who decided to start the Montpellier player Arthur Vincent in the center alongside Virimi Vakatawa.

For the rest of the roster, the winners of Wales are renewed including Racingman Bernard Le Roux, heard this week by the Disciplinary Commission of the Six Nations Tournament.

No sanction has been retained against him.

To win their first title in the Tournament since the Grand Slam of 2010, the Blues must beat Ireland and do better than England in Italy since Fabien Galthié's men show a slight difference in points compared to the English (+13 against +15).
