Yoann Huget will win his first France cap in a year against Argentina this Saturday as one of two changes to Jacques Brunel's team.
The wing has 51 international caps but has not appeared for his country since a defeat to South Africa 12 months ago.
He will replace Damian Penaud after the left wing sustained an ankle injury in the first half of the loss to the Springboks last weekend.
In the other change to the French team, Gael Fickou will replace Geoffrey Doumayrou at inside centre.
France, who will be captained by Guilhem Guirado, have lost five games in a row and have not been defeated in six successive matches since a 10-game losing streak in 1968-69.
