France and Scotland will play again on Saturday - but this time in Saint Etienne, after Gregor Townsend's side beat the French in Edinburgh last weekend.


Scotland staged an impressive comeback to win 25-21 after trailing 21-3. It was not all good news for Scotland, though, as Zander Fagerson was red carded for charging into a ruck. He will be available for their first World Cup match against South Africa after a reduced ban.

Townsend's men will look to enact another victory, but the head coach has made six changes for the World Cup warm-up.

Among them is captain Jamie Ritchie's return to the squad, and experienced scrum-half Ali Price will line up next to half-back partner and last week's skipper Finn Russell.

France, meanwhile, make 13 changes to their starting squad, with a completely new back line which includes captain Antoine Dupont and prolific try scorer Damian Penaud. Paul Boudehent retains his spot but is the only one kept from the back row, with Charles Ollivon and Grégory Alldritt coming in.
