Wales inside centre Jamie Roberts has been handed a start for Racing Métro in their Heineken Cup clash with high-flying Clermont on Sunday.
Roberts returns to the side following injury in a boost for both club and country after last week's disappointing home defeat to the Scarlets.
He lines up alongside Fabrice Estebanez in midfield while there is no place in the match-day squad for Mike Phillips and Jonathan Sexton.
Dan Lydiate must make do with a bench spot.
Meanwhile, an in-form Clermont side have named former Welsh international Lee Byrne at full-back in place of Jean-Marcellin Buttin while Mike Delany comes in for Brock James at fly-half.
Ludovic Radoslavjevic replaces Morgan Parra at the base of the scrum.
In the pack there is a start for Gerhard Vosloo and Clément Ric who replace Julien Bardy and Davit Zirakashvili respectively.
Clermont: 15 Byrne, 14 Sivivatu, 13 Rougerie (c), 12 Fofana, 11 Nalaga, 10 Delany, 9 Radoslavjevic; 1 Domingo, 2 Kayser, 3 Ric, 4 Cudmore, 5 Hines, 6 Vosloo, 7 Lapandry, 8 Lee.
Replacements: 16 Paulo, 17 Chaume, 18 Debaty, 19 Pierre, 20 Chouly, 21 Parra, 22 Stanley, 23 Buttin.
Racing Métro: 15 Fall, 14 Imhoff, 13 Estebanez, 12 Roberts, 11 Andreu, 10 Hernandez, 9 Machenaud; 1 Brugnaut, 2 Szarzewski (c), 3 Mujati, 4 van der Merwe, 5 Ghezal, 6 Le Roux, 7 Gerondeau, 8 Nailiko.
Replacements: 16 Maurouard, 17 Khinchagishvili, 18 Ducalcon, 19 Cronje, 20 Lydiate, 21 Magnaval, 22 Dambielle, 23 Dumoulin.
