Wales and France are both in need of a win as the two sides meet in round four of the Six Nations.

Warren Gatland’s hosts are winless so far but have taken encouragement from the promise shown by a clutch of youngsters as the coach rebuilds his squad.

Nonetheless, the veteran schemer may spy an opportunity to record a significant win with France some way off their best so far in this championship.

Fabien Galthie’s side were fortunate to escape their meeting with Italy with a draw and will have to be better in Cardiff.

Team news

Starting centre pairing Nick Tompkins and George North are left out of the Wales side, with Owen Watkin and Joe Roberts preferred in midfield. Captain Dafydd Jenkins is shifted to the blindside for the first time in his senior playing career to accommodate Will Rowlands in the second row, and Ryan Elias replaces Elliot Dee, who is set to win a 50th cap from the bench.

After drawing with Italy, Fabien Galthie rings the changes in his French side with three debutants named in the starting fifteen. Enormous lock Emmanuel Meafou starts in the pack, where captain Gregory Alldritt is fit to return from injury and Julien Marchand is preferred to Peato Mauvaka at hooker. First-capper Nicolas Depoortere steps in for the suspended Jonathan Danty at inside centre while Matthieu Jalibert’s absence is compensated for by Thomas Ramos moving to fly half; Leo Barre is the third new face in the run-on side at full-back.

Georges-Henri Colombe also awaits a debut from the bench.
