Morgan Parra to skipper France

France head coach Jacques Brunel has made two changes to his line-up that will take on New Zealand at Forsyth Barr Stadium on Saturday.

Morgan Parra will skipper the French in the absence of Mathieu Bastareaud, with Wesley Fofana and Remi Lamerat coming in as the new centres.

Otherwise it is an unchanged backline with Anthony Belleau alongside Parra and Gael Fickou, Teddy Thomas and Benjamin Fall in the back three.

The forward pack is as it was in Wellington as France look to end the season on a positive note in Dunedin after some encouraging performances.

France: 15 Benjamin Fall, 14 Teddy Thomas, 13 Remi Lamerat, 12 Wesley Fofana, 11 Gael Fickou, 10 Anthony Belleau, 9 Morgan Parra (c), 8 Kevin Gourdon, 7 Kelian Galletier, 6 Mathieu Babillot, 5 Yoann Maestri, 4 Bernard Le Roux, 3 Uini Atonio, 2 Camille Chat, 1 Dany Priso
Replacements: 16 Adrien Pelissie, 17 Cyril Baille, 18 Cedate Gomes Sa, 19 Felix Lambey, 20 Alexandre Lapandry, 21 Baptiste Serin, 22 Jules Plisson, 23 Maxime Medard
