France make 2 change for final Six Nations game with Wales
There are two changes to France’s starting 15 as Fabien Galthie named his side to take on Wales at the Stade de France this Saturday in Paris in their final game of the 2023 Guinness Six Nations.
Uini Atonio returns at tighthead, while Romain Taofifénua starts at tighthead lock in place of the injured Paul Willemse. Atonio returns from a ban for a yellow card against Ireland which was upgraded to a red following a citing review.
He replaces Dorian Aldegheri who has fallen out of the 23 altogether.

France are coming off a thrilling 53-10 win over England in Round 4 in Twickenham, with Galthie’s side handing the English a record home defeat and a record Guinness Six Nations defeat.
Les Bleus are still in with a chance of winning the tournament, although they’ll need to beat Wales in Paris and hope Steve Borthwick’s men can bag an unlikely win against Andy Farrell’s high-flying Ireland – who are hot on the heels of a Grand Slam – in Dublin.
Team: T Ramos; D Penaud, G Fickou, J Danty, E Dumortier; R Ntamack, A Dupont (capt); C Baille, J Marchand, U Atonio, T Flament, R Taofifenua, F Cros, C Ollivon, G Alldritt.
Replacements: P Mauvaka, R Wardi, S Falatea, B Chalureau, S Macalou, M Lucu, Y Moefana, M Jaminet.

All that yadda yadda yadda won't count for much ....my boks love the chase...and come the world cup all the rankings and the bravado won't save the north.....cause we all know....on a rugby field there's no place to hide.. The south have won 8 out of 9 world cups...and not one of those three countries is going to roll over and play dead ..in fact they're going to show the world exactly why the south dominates ,despite years and years of northern poaching... Dream on Clive....oh your coffees gone coldGo to comments
