LAST MEETING
Wales beat France 14-13

THE LOWDOWN

FRANCE

  • France led 14-12 at half-time against Fiji but they conceded nine points in the second half to record a shock loss at home in November
  • France's back row Bernard Le Roux will miss the game due to picking up a knee injury while playing for Racing 92 earlier this month

WALES

  • Wales claimed their ninth straight test win in November with a 20-11 victory over South Africa at the Principality Stadium
  • Leigh Halfpenny has been ruled out of the opening game with France due to a concussion suffered in November against Australia

THE PREDICTION

Wales defeated France by one point in last year's Six Nations, and they will be boisterous heading into this game in Paris since they are undefeated in their last nine games. France have lost two of their last three home games so expect Wales to edge a close contest and win.
