France finalised the make-up of their bench just hours before kick-off in the first Test against the All Blacks at Carisbrook Stadium on Saturday.

The French selectors originally named a nine-man bench to give them time to assess the fitness of the late-arriving Nicolas Mas and Thomas Domingo, who played in last weekend’s Top 14 final in France between Perpignan and Clermont.

Mas was cleared to take his place in the reserves but Domingo was left out of the final match squad along with Remy Martin.

France (15-1):

Maxime Medard, Vincent Clerc, Mathieu Bastareaud, Damien Traille, Cedric Heymans, Francois Trinh-Duc, Julien Dupuy; Louis Picamoles, Fulgence Ouedraogo, Thierry Dusautoir (captain), Romain Millo-Chluski, Pascal Pape, Sylvain Marconnet, William Servat, Fabien Barcella.

Reserves: Dimitri Szarzewski, Nicolas Mas, Sebastien Chabal, Julien Puricelli, Dimitri Yachvili, Yannick Jauzion, Alexis Palisson.
