Two years ago, Wales were defending champions and France were on their way to the Grand Slam. Now they're both just hoping to avoid the wooden spoon. To their credit, Warren Gatland's young side has shown flashes, which is more than can be said for Les Bleus, who entered the 2024 Six Nations as favourites but are lucky to have any points on the board at all.

Questionable refereeing decisions gifted France a victory over Scotland and a draw against Italy, when both games should have ended in defeat. Poor discipline and the absence of star scrum-half Antoine Dupont have hurt them, but such has been the scale and speed of the decline that head coach Fabien Galthié's job has come under scrutiny – something that was unthinkable even a month ago.

By contrast, even though Wales have just a single point to show from their three games, fans can see that Gatland is building something. They nearly pulled off a comeback for the ages against Scotland and came within minutes of a first win at Twickenham since 2012. The 31-7 defeat to Grand Slam-chasing Ireland last time out was nothing to be too ashamed of. 

In their final home game of the tournament, though, Wales will want to repay their fans for their loyal support and give them a taster of what lies ahead. This France team is there for the taking.
