France v Wales

France v Wales



Just another anomaly in 2020’s sporting calendar – a Six Nations scrum-down in October. Fans were left hanging in March with the championship wide open: of the contenders who could still win it (England, France, Scotland and Ireland), only Ireland have their destiny entirely in their own hands.

If they beat Italy today and France next weekend [italics] and [italics], crucially, collect a bonus point (for scoring four or more tries) from each game, they will top the table. Clear? Otherwise England, with one match to play (also against Italy), look favourites.

Mark Pougatch hosts the action from Dublin's Aviva Stadium. Meanwhile on ITV4, Wales reunite for a warm-up against France.


France v Wales (Kick-off 8.00pm). Mark Pougatch presents all the action from the match at Stade de France, as the sides prepare for their matches in the final round of Six Nations fixtures at home to Ireland and Scotland respectively. France claimed a 27-23 away win when the sides met in the championship in February, avenging a 20-19 defeat in the quarter-finals of last year's World Cup. With analysis from Gareth Thomas and James Hook, and commentary by Martin Gillingham and Shane Williams.
