France have made six changes for Sunday’s Autumn Nations Series clash with Georgia, as Fabien Galthié looks to rotate his squad.

Five of those changes have come in the pack, including a whole new second-row as Cameron Woki and Romain Taofifenua are promoted to the engine room in place of Thibaud Flament and Paul Willemse.

Sekou Macalou and Grégory Alldritt are recalled to the back row, while Anthony Jelonch keeps his place but shifts from No.8 to blindside flanker.

Tighthead prop Uini Atonio comes in for Mohamed Haouas, while in the back three Matthis Lebel starts on the left wing over Gabin Villière.

Scrum-half Antoine Dupont captains France, while the exciting Matthieu Jalibert-Romain Ntamack partnership at fly-half and inside centre is again allowed to flourish.

Flament, Willemse and Francois Cros all drop to the bench, while Demba Bamba is called into the matchday 23.
