FRANCE v AUSTRALIA FREE BETTING PREVIEW France recorded a huge 40-15 win over Fiji, with winger Teddy Thomas wowing on debut with a hat-trick of tries. Prior to this win, the French had lost four in a row, and have now won just four of their last 10 games, a record boosted against the likes of Fiji and Italy.
South African-born full-back Scott Spedding and hat-trick hero Teddy Thomas, both debutants last time out, will retain their spot as Coach Saint-Andre has named an unchanged team named for this Test match
Australia claimed a hard fought 33-28 win over Wales in Cardiff last weekend. Theat win, in Cheika’s first official test match in charge, was the Wallabies fifth in the last 10 games. Anyway, in two matches since he took charge following the abrupt sacking of Ewen McKenzie, Cheika's Wallabies have conceded nine tries.
The visitors don't make too many changes, with James Horwill's return the only alteration to the run-on team. Back-rower Scott Higginbotham is out because of a hamstring injury suffered against the Barbarians few weeks ago. Israel Folau has been the talk of the town after the fullback broke his recent try-scoring duck and displayed his finishing prowess.
The Wallabies have fared well in recent contests against the French, winning eight of their last 10 encounters including a three-nil sweep on Australian soil earlier this year. Australia did lose in their last trip to Pari in 2012, going down 33-6, but they maintain a positive record of 4 wins from 6 outings in their visits to the Stade De France.
