Racing Metro's Eddy Ben Arous will play at loosehead prop for France against Ireland this weekend in the only change to Philippe Saint-Andre's team from last weekend's victory over the Scots.

Alexandre Menini is injured and misses the game with veteran Vincent Debaty offering cover on the bench.

Rory Kockett is preferred to Morgan Parra at scrumhalf despite Parra strong cameo in the 15-8 victory over Vern Cotter's Scotland at the Stade de France.

Camille Lopez remains at fly-half with the dangerous back three of Teddy Thomas, Yoan Huget and Scott Spedding also keeping their places.
