Wallabies unchanged for France Test

Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has named an unchanged line-up for Saturday night's rugby Test against France in Sydney.

Deans has retained the 22-man squad which beat Ireland 18-12 in Melbourne 10 days ago in his first Test match in charge of the Australian team.

"Melbourne was a starting point for us as a group," Deans said on Tuesday.

"As such, it was important that we kept the combination together as much as we could to allow them to develop further with more time operating as a unit in a match-day environment.

"Fortunately, injuries or - more accurately - a lack of them, have allowed us to do that."

Team: Cameron Shepherd, Peter Hynes, Stirling Mortlock (capt), Berrick Barnes, Lote Tuqiri, Matt Giteau, Luke Burgess, Wycliff Palu, George Smith, Rocky Elsom, Nathan Sharpe, James Horwill, Matt Dunning, Stephen Moore, Benn Robinson. Reserves: Adam Freier, Al Baxter, Dean Mumm, Phil Waugh, Sam Cordingley, Ryan Cross, Adam Ashley-Cooper.
