Biarritz flanker Wenceslas Lauret will make his debut for France against the Springboks at Newlands on Saturday.
Lauret has been selected in an experienced team for this test, which kicks off at 2pm.

France coach Marc Lievremont said Lauret’s presence would help to contain the intensity which the expected big Springbok loose trio brings to the match. Schalk Burger and Pierre Spies are likely to feature for South Africa.

“The Springboks have a great backrow, a very balanced one with capable runners and tacklers,” said Lievremont.

“The Springboks’ play revolves around their back row and Lauret has shown he deserves his place in the national team.”

Thierry Dusautoir will captain the visitors, who will be without two of their star players during the Six Nations – the injured Imanol Harinordoquy (No 8) and Mathieu Bastareaud (centre).

France: 15 Clement Poitrenaud, 14 Vincent Clerc, 13 David Marty, 12 Maxime Mermoz, 11 Aurelien Rougerie, 10 Francois Trinh-Duc, 9 Morgan Parra, 8 Julien Bonnaire, 7 Wenceslas Lauret, 6 Thierry Dusautoir (capt), 5 Romain Millo-Chluski, 4 Lionel Nallet, 3 Nicolas Mas, 2 Dimitri Szarzewski, 1 Thomas Domingo. Replacements: 16 Guilhem Guirado, 17 Jean Baptiste Poux, 18 Julien Pierre, 19 Louis Picamoles, 20 Dimitri Yachvili, 21 David Skrela, 22 Marc Andreu.

  • Not the strongest backline but still a pretty good one, Francois Trinh-Duc is developing into a great flyhalf and Morgan Parra formed a great partnership with him in the 6 nations.

    I think the Boks are going to be in for a difficult afternoon. I just hope the Boks get their job done so I don’t get ribbed by all the Frenchmen.
