France have handed out three debuts ahead of their match against Fiji on Saturday.

Scott Spedding gets the nod at fullback while Teddy Thomas is named on the wing and Alexandre Dumoulin at outside centre. There could be further debutants with uncapped trio Uini Atonio, Rory Kockott and Charles Ollivon potentially getting their chances from the bench with the replacements yet to be confirmed.

Spedding gets his chance at the expense of the injured Brice Dulin while Thomas is handed a spot on the wing after an impressive start to the season at Racing Metro. For Dumoulin, he pips Maxime Mermoz and Mathieu Bastareaud to the No.13 shirt with Wesley Fofana at 12.

France: Scott Spedding, Yoann Huget, Alexandre Dumoulin, Wesley Fofana, Teddy Thomas, Camille Lopez, Sébastien Tillous-Borde, Alexandre Menini, Guilhem Guirado, Nicolas Mas, Pascal Papé, Yoann Maestri, Thierry Dusautoir (c), Bernard Le Roux, Damien Chouly
