France have announced that they will play Samoa, Australia and New Zealand on successive weekends in their 2016 Autumn Internationals in November.

France will be led by new coach Guy Noves and will begin their international window against Samoa on November 12 at a venue to be decided.

France have relocated from Paris, playing Fiji in Marseille (2014), Tonga in Le Havre (2013) and Argentina in Lille (2012).

France will then host the Wallabies on November 19 before taking on the two-time reigning world champions All Blacks on November 26, both matches taking place at the Stade de France.
