France coach Marc Lievremont has named his side to face England with Morgan Parra continuing at fly-half and Imanol Harinordoquy at No 8.
Les Bleus face Martin Johnson's side at Eden Park on Saturday with Lievremont struggling to contain rumours of a mutiny in his squad after a dire performance in a defeat against Tonga in their last pool match.
Lievremont has continued with his plan of using scrum-half Morgan Parra at No 10 while powerful centre Aurelien Rougerie is fit to start despite injuring his shoulder in the defeat by Tonga.
Biarritz powerhouse Harinordoquy is restored to the starting line-up at the expense of Raphael Lakafia, who started against France, while Louis Picamoles is on the bench.
England defeated host nation France at the semi-final stage of the 2007 Rugby World Cup in a dramatic encounter at Stade de France in Paris.
Maxime Medard, Vincent Clerc, Aurelien Rougerie, Maxime Mermoz, Alexis Palisson, Morgan Parra, Dimitri Yachvili; Imanol Harinordoquy, Julien Bonnaire, Thierry Dusautoir (captain), Lionel Nallet, Pascal Pape, Nicolas Mas, William Servat, Jean-Baptiste Poux.
