Lievremont makes two changes

France coach Marc Lievremont has made two changes to his side to face Australia on Saturday, bringing flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo and full-back Jerome Porical into his starting line-up.

Ouedraogo, 24, who missed the 13-6 win over Argentina, slides into the back row alongside Sebastien Chabal and Thierry Dusautoir, with Julien Bonnaire dropping to the bench.

Porical's inclusion pushes Alexis Palisson to the wing, while Marc Andreu will be on the bench.

France team to face Australia at the Stade de France on Saturday:

Jerome Porical; Yoann Huget, Aurelien Rougerie, Yannick Jauzion, Alexis Palisson; Damien Traille, Morgan Parra; Thomas Domingo, William Servat, Nicolas Mas, Julien Pierre, Lionel Nallet, Thierry Dusautoir (capt), Fulgence Ouedraogo, Sebastien Chabal.

Replacements: Guilhem Guirado, Jerome Schuster, Jerome Thion, Julien Bonnaire, Dimitri Yachvili, Fabrice Estebanez, Marc Andreu.
