France boss Philippe Saint-Andre has made one change to the side ahead of their Test with Argentina on Saturday in Lille.

Second-row Yoann Maestri, who missed last weekend's rout of Australia due to a back injury, comes back into the side in place of Jocelino Suta. The rest of the team is unchanged with Frederic Michalak, who shone against the Australians and scooped the man-of-the-match award, retained at fly-half with Maxime Machenaud alongside him at scrum-half.

The Test is the second of France's three for the November period and they will tackle Samoa in the Stade de France next weekend.

France Team:

Brice Dulin, WesleyFofana, Florian Fritz, Maxime Mermoz, Vincent Clerc, Frederic Michalak, Maxime Machenaud, Yannick Forestier, Dimitri Szarzewski, Nicolas Mas, Pascal Pape (captain), Yoann Maestri, Yannick Nyanga, Fulgence Ouedraogo, Louis Picamoles

Replacements: Benjamin Kayser, Thomas Domingo, Vincent Debaty, Jocelino Suta, Damien Chouly, Morgan Parra, Fran├žois Trinh-Duc, Yoann Huget
