France team to play England on Saturday

Marc Lievremont has recalled Mathieu Bastereaud to his team that will be chasing Grand Slam glory against England on Saturday.

The return of the giant centre is the only change to the French side that dispatched the Italians on Saturday, and the thought of him mowing down Mathew Tait is quite frightening.

What are the odds on a surprise recall for Ayoola Erinle and Jamie Noon to counter this move, or for Johnno to put Joe Worsley in the centres?
