Wesley Fofana and Remi Lamerat have been named in the France team for the final Test and Morgan Parra will take over as captain against New Zealand in Dunedin on Saturday.

Clermont Auvergne duo Fofana and Lamerat come into the side to make up the centre pairing at Forsyth Barr Stadium, with skipper Mathieu Bastareaud rested and Geoffrey Doumayrou (ankle) ruled out.

Livewire Fofana will win his first cap since facing the All Blacks at Stade de France in November 2016 as Les Bleus attempt to avoid a 3-0 whitewash.

Benjamin Fall keeps his place after the full-back's controversial red card in the second Test at Westpac Stadium was rescinded.

Lock Felix Lambey is in line to make his debut from the bench against the world champions, while Adrien Pelissie has also been named among the replacements.


France: Benjamin Fall, Teddy Thomas, Remi Lamerat, Wesley Fofana, Gael Fickou, Anthony Belleau, Morgan Parra (captain); Dany Priso, Camille Chat, Uini Atonio, Bernard Le Roux, Yoann Maestri, Mathieu Babillot, Kelian Galletier, Kevin Gourdon.

Replacements: Adrien Pelissie, Cyril Baille, Cedate Gomes Sa, Felix Lambey, Alexandre Lapandry, Baptiste Serin, Jules Plisson, Maxime Medard.
