In a great game, France host Wales on Saturday from 5pm live on ESPN Extra and ESPN Play, with the Six Nations title at stake, since the Dragon depends on himself to be champion.
For the match to be played in Paris, the local team will put on the court the same starting XV that fell to England 27-24 In the past week. Where there will be news is in the substitute bench, since Galthie summoned the pillar Uini Atonio, the second line Swan Rebbadj and the center Arthur Vincent, replacing Dorian Aldegheri, Cyril Cazeaux and Cameron Woki respectively.
For its part, Wales make only one change after thrashing Italy and dream of lifting the trophy. Adam Beard, who started the first three games for Wales, returns to the team alongside captain Alun Wyn Jones.
“We are all looking forward to Saturday and the end of the Six Nations,” said head coach Pivac. “We have won four out of four to date, but we know this weekend will be a great challenge against a very good French team, but we are looking forward to it. We know we need to improve on our previous performances and we want to end the tournament with a performance that we know we are capable of. “
