France have had a poor 6 Nations it’s fair to say. A stuttering home win over a rejuvenated Scotland and a win in Rome are all they have to show thus far. They’ll want to finish with a bang.
With talk of strikes in Stade Francais as the fall out from the Parisian merger story continues, French rugby could do with some good news. With that in mind, the team named for this weekend’s clash with Wales has just been announced on the FFR Twitter page.

There is one change to the side that defeated Italy where Clermont Auvergne’s Sebastien Vahaamahina comes into the second row for Julien Le Devedec after recovering from a back injury.
France will be especially keen to get a result in order to avoid dropping down the world raknings ahead of the draw for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. A loss by 15 or more would see the French slip into pot 3 of the draw to be held in May.
