Wales v France

John Inverdale presents as Wales continue their defence of the Six Nations title they won in 2013 against a France side keen to avenge their poor showing in last year's tournament.

There has been an exodus of Welsh talent to the French Top 14, including Jonathan Davies and Leigh Halfpenny following exceptional displays for their country and the Lions. The influx of such foreign imports has openly frustrated France coach Philippe Saint Andre in his bid to build a world-class squad. His players hope to prove themselves to their country, their clubs and the rest of the northern hemisphere after their 2013 'wooden spoon' disappointment.

Studio analysis comes from Jeremy Guscott, Shane Williams and Thomas Castaignede, with commentary by Eddie Butler, Jonathan Davies and Martyn Williams.
