France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has named a team showing one enforced change for Friday's RBS 6 Nations clash against Wales in Cardiff.

Flanker Wenceslas Lauret replaces his Racing Metro team-mate Bernard Le Roux, who was injured during the 30-10 victory over Italy 10 days ago.

Saint-Andre otherwise retains the team that posted a second successive Six Nations victory this season as Les Bleus target a win that would keep them on course for the title and Grand Slam.

Changes on the replacements' bench include a call-up for Castres back Remi Tales, while his club colleague - hooker Brice Mach - steps in for an injured Benjamin Kayser.

France have beaten Wales on five of their previous seven Six Nations visits to the Millennium Stadium, while Wales - crushed 26-3 by Ireland last time out - have not lost successive Six Nations games since 2010.

B Dulin (Castres); Y Huget (Toulouse), M Bastareaud (Toulon), W Fofana (Clermont Auvergne), H Bonneval (Stade Francais); J Plisson (Stade Francais), J-M Doussain (Toulouse); T Domingo (Clermont Auvergne), D Szarzewski (Racing Metro), N Mas (Montpellier), P Pape (Stade Francais, captain), Y Maestri (Toulouse), Y Nyanga (Toulouse), W Lauret (Racing Metro), L Picamoles (Toulouse).

Replacements: B Mach (Castres), Y Forestier (Castres), V Debaty (Clermont Auvergne), S Vahaamahina (Perpignan), D Chouly (Clermont Auvergne), M Machenaud (Racing Metro), R Tales (Castres), G Fickou (Toulouse).
