The third round of 6-Nations matches gets under way on Friday Evening in Cardiff, where unbeaten Wales will play host to the 100% winning French side. After producing a terrific come from behind performance in Dublin against Ireland, which saw them claim a 16-16 draw, after trailing by 0-13, the Welsh had to once again dig deep to claim victory against Scotland by 27-23 in Cardiff two weeks ago.

France are second in the 6-Nations table, trailing England on points difference only, after winning their opening two fixtures, both played in Paris, and both resulting in narrow, and unconvincing successes. France scraped home by 23-21 against Italy, and followed up by beating Ireland 10-9 in an insipid encounter. If Wales manage to record victory on Friday, it will be their fifth successive victory against Les Bleus, the first time that they have managed such a feat since way back in 1927.

The last time that a fixture between the two sides has produced more than two tries, was the Six Nations encounter back in 2011, when France scored three tries on their way to a 28-9 victory in Paris. The last French win between the two teams was in late 2011, when they squeezed through a controversial World Cup semi-final by 9-8, despite Wales scoring the only try of the game.

Wales will attempt to railroad French Grand Slam ambitions, and resurrect their own Championship hopes, at the Millennium Stadium on Friday night, as the Six Nations re-starts after a week's break. They will, however, have to do so, without their first choice centre, Jonathan Davies, who has failed to recover from a pectoral injury, and to add to the selector’s headache on this issue, one of his potential replacements, the Ospreys' Ashley Beck, has also been ruled out of the game through injury.

Davies is still to recover fully from the torn chest muscle that he suffered against South Africa in November, and although he returned to action for the Scarlets against London Irish on 1 February, and was called into the Welsh squad, it wasn't felt that he was fit enough to be released to play for Scarlets last weekend. With Scott Williams also missing due to injury, it is possible that the selectors may decide to move the Northampton winger George North into the centre to help solve the problem, and to help to counter the physical threat of the French midfield.

The good news for Wales coach, Warren Gatland, is that lock Luke Charteris is fit again after a hamstring injury. Charteris played in the opening game of the championship against Italy, but picked up the injury in that match, and was replaced for the defeat in Dublin, by Newport Gwent Dragons captain Andrew Coombs.

On Saturday, March 17th, Wales and France will face off in Millennium Stadium at 14:45 local time which is the same time GMT. This is part of the Six Nations Rugby Championship. Wales is the current table leader with all four games won out of the four that they have had the opportunity to play so far this season. That gives them a point total of eight at the moment. The France Six Nations teams are in the fourth spot down right now. They have won exactly half of the games that they have played so far, but they also had a draw for an extra point for five total.
