PARIS, Nov 10 (AFP) - Australia on Wednesday named an unchanged side to take on France at the Stade de France on Saturday in a one-off Test match.

The Australians named the same side that opened their European tour with 31-14 win over Scotland in Edinburgh last Saturday.

"We were reasonably happy with the way we started the tour against Scotland and haven't seen the need to make any changes at this stage," said Wallaby coach Eddie Jones.

"This will be one of the biggest Tests of the year. We know we need to step it up another level and we are going to play our traditional style of positive rugby," he added.

Australia (15-1) Chris Latham (Queensland); Clyde Rathbone (ACT), Stirling Mortlock (ACT), Matt Giteau (ACT), Lote Tuqiri (NSW); Stephen Larkham (ACT), George Gregan (ACT, capt); John Roe (Queensland), Phil Waugh (NSW), George Smith (ACT); Daniel Vickerman (NSW), Justin Harrison (NSW); Alastair Baxter (NSW), Jeremy Paul (ACT), Bill Young (ACT) Replacements: Brendan Cannon (NSW), Matt Dunning (NSW), Mark Chisholm (ACT), David Lyons (NSW), Elton Flatley (Queensland), Mat Rogers (NSW), Wendell Sailor (Queensland)
