France won their only home game so far, 15-8 against Scotland in Round 1 scoring just a single try. Then, in Round 2 Les Bleus went down 18-11 to Ireland in Dublin. Again they scored the only try of the game. It was really pounding effort by the French, who had to grind and plod their way through the game.

888sport treble oddsPhilippe Saint Andre has made 5 changes to the team that were defeated by Ireland at the Aviva Stadium two weeks ago by bringing in Brice Dulin, Remi Lamerat, Sofiane Guitoune and Morgan Parra. Pascal Pape, currenty serving a ban for kneeing Jamie Heaslip in the back, is the only change in the forwards as Romaine Taofifenua comes into the second row to replace him.

Wales bounced back from their defeat at the hands of England in the opening week by securing a pivotal win over Scotland at Murrayfield. In 2014 Wales lost their two 6 Nations away fixtures against Ireland and England, failing to score a try in both games.

Wales coach Warren Gatland has opted to shake up his settled side for Saturday's clash with France by making 4 changes to the team that started against Scotland.  George North returns to the starting line up at the expense of Alex Cuthbert. Luke Charteris, Scott Baldwin and Samson Lee all return to the starting XV too.

If Wales beat France, it will be their fourth successive win over Les Blues. Wales took a 16-6 win on their last visit to Paris in 2013, but that has been their only victory in their last four visits there. The 2014 meeting in Cardiff produced a comfortable 27-6 win for Wales. France have not scored a try in a Six Nations match against Wales since 2011.
