Australias Grand Slam quest goes on hold this week as they head to Stade de France to face Les Bleus. Josh Leivo Jersey . Michael Cheikas men are two from two up north having beaten both Wales and Scotland, though only Tevita Kuridranis outstretched right hand saw them avoid defeat at Murrayfield last week.France, meanwhile, began their autumn campaign with a crunching 52-8 victory over Samoa. Fijian-born Virimi Varakawa, a prime example of the current debate over the international residency rule, was the star of that victory with a hat trick and his showdown with in-form Wallabies winger Dane Haylett-Petty will be of interest in Paris.But the big question for the visitors is just how their back-up players perform in the spotlight after Cheika made a raft of changes to freshen up his 23. Opposite Guy Noves must surely be revving his troops up at the prospect of a win over one of the southern hemispheres big three and, given Australias lack of experience in some quarters, the French will fancy their chances of repeating their three-point victory from this time last year.Team newsGuy Noves has made five changes to the side that hammered Samoa last week, the biggest of which sees Jean-Marc Doussain get the nod to replace Trinh-Duc at No.10. The back three will feature two Fijian-born players in Paris, with Noa Nakaitaci moving onto the right wing.Cheika hinted earlier this week he would be making changes and that certainly proved to be the case when the Wallabies squad was revealed on Thursday. Up front, there is an all new tight five with Stephen Moores move to the bench seeing David Pocock captain the side. Pocock has moved back to his favoured No.7 jersey with Scott Fardy and Sean McMahon starting at No.6 and No.8 respectively. In the backs, the new faces are Quade Cooper, Kyle Godwin, Sefanaia Naivalu and Luke Morahan.France: Spedding, Nakaitaci, Lamerat, Fofana, Vakatawa, Doussain, Machenaud; Baille, Guirado (C), Atonio, Vahaamahina, Maestri, Gourdon, Picamoles.Replacements: Chat, Chiocci, Slimani, Le Devedec, Chouly, Serin, Lopez, Fickou.Australia: Morahan, Naivalu, Kuridrani, Godwin, Speight, Cooper, Genia; Slipper, Latu, Alaalatoa, Douglas, Simmons, Fardy, Pocock (C), McMahon.Replacements: Moore, Sio, Robertson, Skelton, Mumm, Timani, Phipps, Foley, Naiyaravoro (one to be omitted).Key match-up: Guilhelm Guirado vs Tolu LatuRival captains looked set to face off at hooker this week with until Cheika opted to give Moore a rest and start his skipper from the bench. That means Guirado is suddenly the vastly-more experienced hooker (44 caps) with Latu set to wear the gold jersey for just the second time.Playing his rugby with the likes of Matt Giteau, Drew Mitchell and James OConnor at Toulon, Guirado may have a little inside knowledge of Australian play. He will also look to bring the pressure at scrum time and do his best to upset Latu on the Australians throw at lineout time.Key stats- France have met Australia four times at Stade de France since 2009, splitting those Tests with two victories apiece.- After finding himself on the outer rim throughout the Rugby Championship, Tevita Kuridrani has scored a try in each of the Wallabies Tests in Europe.WeatherParis is expecting a cool night with the temperature expected to be around 7 degrees Celsius. There is only a small chance of rain, while light winds are expected.VerdictThe Wallabies may have been a little lucky to escape with a win in Edinburgh, but there had been earlier signs of the improving shape in their game. If that upward trend continues with their new-look squad in Paris, and their set-piece remains solid, Cheikas side should have too much class for a French outfit still finding its feet under Noves. The lack of experience looks to be a worry for Australia, but given the presence of Will Genia and David Pocock they should still have enough cool heads to prevail.Australia by five. Maple Leafs Jerseys China .Y. -- Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers had no intention of changing his hard-hitting style before taking part in a disciplinary hearing for his illegal check to New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus head. Dave Keon Jersey . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. http:///...ap-grant-fuhr-jersey .
