Super Saturday Six Nations scenarios

England must work out how to get the best out of back-row options including Chris Robshaw

It was a complete effort from France, who showed they can score over you, around you, and through you, and at the same time defend until the final meter.

Wales team: Leigh Halfpenny, George North, Scott Williams, Hadleigh Parkes, Liam Williams, Dan Biggar, Gareth Davies; Rob Evans, Ken Owens, Tomas Francis, Cory Hill, Alun Wyn Jones (captain), Justin Tipuric, Josh Navidi, Taulupe Faletau.

"There have been some tough selection calls, but that is exactly what we want, we want to be in a position where there are selections and decisions to be made and we have had to make some tough ones this weekend", Wales coach Warren Gatland said.

Looking to lead Wales, unbeaten at home against France since 2010, around the park will be Dan Biggar, preferred at fly-half with Gareth Anscombe dropping to the bench.

France centre Mathieu Bastareaud skippers France in place of the injured Guilhem Guirado.

France: Fall, Fickou, Bastareaud (capt), Doumayrou, Grosso, Trinh-Duc, Machenaud; Poirot, Pelissie, Gomes Sa, Gabrillagues, Vahaamahina, Lauret, Camara, Tauleigne.

Wales now fave France next week hoping they can finish runners up to Ireland who play England for a potential Grand Slam. He's like a quiet force.

"We know the context of the championship".

But 10 of the 15 players who started at the Stade de France in last year's Six Nations were on the pitch at kickoff at the Principality stadium on Saturday as Wales weathered the French storm in the second half.

The away side has won nine of their 18 Six Nations matches.

With a number of Les Bleus stood wondering if the kick-off had travelled 10 yards, Scott Williams sent a grubber through which Trinh-Duc allowed to bounce over his head and behind him, where Liam Williams picked up and slid over.

"There are some quality teams in this Six Nations, so to finish second would be a good thing for us".

"It keeps getting stronger and stronger, and that can only be good for the game in Wales". Ireland's players and fans took great delight in the long faces of England's defeated players collecting their championship medals and will not want to experience the same bitter-sweet taste. I felt all along going into this competition we could do well in the Six Nations.

Top of the standings with 19 points from four wins, including three bonus points, the title, their first since 2015, is in the bag.

France have only scored more than two tries in a game twice in their last 16 internationals - both were against Italy.
