Francois Trinh-Duc will bring much-needed experience to the French squad for the tour of South Africa

With regular pivot Camille Lopez being rested, Trinh-Duc has a chance to reclaim the No.10

jumper he lost to Lopez last year.

Jedrasiak, meanwhile, who plays for French champions Clermont and made his international debut for the Cocks last year, currently has six caps to his name.

Both players will be in the running to make the match 23 for Saturday’s series opener at Loftus.
