France team to play Wales: 2021 Six Nations

Fabien Galthie has named an unchanged France team to play Wales in a potential Six Nations Grand Slam decider in Paris this weekend.

The former Test captain stuck with fly-half Matthieu Jalibert and blindside flanker Dylan Cretin in favour of Romain Ntamack and Anthony Jelonch, who are on the substitutes’ bench.

The visitors can claim a second tournament clean sweep in three years with a win in Paris.

Galthie’s men need a victory and to beat Scotland in a re-scheduled fixture next Friday to clinch the title for a first time since 2010.

The most likely date for that game is 26 March, but the result of that match will not matter if Wales beat France in Paris on Saturday evening – a game live on BBC One.

France team to play Wales:

Brice Dulin; Damian Penaud, Virimi Vakatawa, Gael Fickou, Teddy Thomas; Matthieu Jalibert, Antoine Dupont; Gregory Alldritt; Charles Ollivon (capt), Dylan Cretin; Paul Willemse, Romain Taofifenua; Mohamed Haouas, Julian Marchand, Cyril Baille

Replacements: Camille Chat, Jean-Baptiste Gros, Uini Atonio, Swann Rebbadj, Anthony Jelonch, Baptiste Serin, Romain Ntamack, Arthur Vincent
