The BBC will broadcast live Six Nations this evening as the third round of fixtures get underway
The match, between Wales and France, takes place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Warren Gatland’s men enter this contest having triumphed in each of the last four meetings with Les Bleus, which includes a hard-fought 20-13 victory in Paris during last year’s tournament.
The French haven’t claimed a win in the Welsh capital since 2010, and while they entered this Six Nations expecting a revival of fortunes under new coach Guy Noves, their unconvincing performance during the 23-21 victory over Italy in the opening weekend suggests they may be on for a tough evening.
Coverage starts at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, where John Inverdale is joined in the studio by Martyn Williams, Thomas Castaignede and Ali Williams.
Commentary comes from Eddie Butler, Brian Moore and Jonathan Davies. Kick-off 8.05pm
