The hooker is hungry for action after failing to make it off the bench in the 28-18 defeat by Wales last time out.
And the Glasgow front-row man knows that, with France needing a victory to avoid finishing bottom of the RBS Six Nations for the first time, only the Scots' most resolute performance will do.
He said: "I think tomorrow night will be about producing a really resolute defensive effort but also having the courage to attack the French when the opportunity presents itself.
"We know that right now they are a side that is hurting and that the Paris crowd will be expecting them to produce big time.
"But we believe there are things we can still do better in the championship. Against Ireland we defended really well without getting enough ball to pose the attacking threat we would have liked.
"Against the Welsh, the way the game was officiated, we were not allowed to play to our strengths. Hopefully in Paris we can bring it all to bear and go out on a high."
While he started the championship in pole position at the centre of the front row, injury has seen Hall lose his starting place to Ross Ford and the 33-year-old admitted his frustration at his lack of game time.
Hall said: "There is nothing worse than being a replacement and not getting on.
"I just hope that tomorrow I will get my chance at some point."
