Philippe Saint-André has made four changes to the France side to play Argentina on Saturday after they beat Australia in Paris last weekend.

There's just one change behind the scrum as Maxime Mermoz replaces the injured Alexandre Dumoulin alongside Wesley Fofana at centre. Up front, Sébastien Vahaamahina comes in for Yoann Maestri at lock, Benjamin Kayser for Guilhem Guirado at hooker and Xavier Chiocci, who makes his first start, in for his Toulon colleague Alexandre Menini at loose-head. Saint-André is yet to name his eight-man bench.

France have won both of their autumn internationals so far. A fortnight ago they saw off Fiji 40-15 in Marseille, before they beat Australia in Paris. Argentina lost 41-31 in Scotland before beating Italy in Genoa on Friday.
