The 2019 Six Nations rugby tournament gets underway this evening as France host Wales.
The match, staged at the Stade de France in Paris, will be shown live on BBC One.
A combination of excellent results for Wales in the autumn internationals and a dismal run of form for the French mean that Warren Gatland’s men start this match as favourites, as they aim to claim the title for the first time since 2013.
Wales failed to win either of their away fixtures in last year’s tournament, but three home wins at least gave them the consolation of finishing second behind Ireland in the standings, with the last of those victories being a 14-13 triumph over the French.
