Rugby Union: Wales in bold bid.
The Welsh coach has made two changes from the side which crushed Italy 38-9 last time out.
Kevin Morgan is in for his injured Newport colleague Hal Luscombe on the right wing while Neath-Swansea forward Ryan Jones comes in at blindside flanker to replace Jonathan Thomas.
Ruddock said: "Former coach Graham Henry said a couple of years ago that we should be bold in France and he was right."
France have called up full-back Julien Laharrague, wing Aurelien Rougerie, centre Yannick Jauzion and flanker Yannick Nyanga.
