Wales v France Match Reports

Wales recorded their fifth consecutive win over France as they ran out 19-10 winners at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. Despite dominating territory and possession in the first half, Wales led by only 3 points at the break. A Dan Biggar penalty and George North try early in the second half saw Wales extend that lead. France then enjoyed their best spell of the match, but failed to make it count on the scoreboard. A fourth penalty by Dan Biggar just after the hour all but secured the match for Wales. With less than 2 minutes remaining, French captain Guilhem Guirado squeezed over for a late consolation try, but it couldn't affect the result. A selection of match reports is listed below:
