Bonjour de Paris, comment allez-vous?

OK that’s enough of that.

Hello and welcome to Stade de France on the final day of the Six Nations.

A Grand Slam, Triple Crown, a title and the wooden spoon… we have it ALL to play for.

And for both of these sides, this is their last competitive match before the World Cup. Gulp!

France are flying on the back of their record 53-10 demolition of England at Twickenham and have a chance to grab the title.

Could things be going better as Les Bleus prepare to host the World Cup in six months?

As for Wales, well they’re right at the other end of the scale.

At least they arrive in Paris on the back of a much-needed win against Italy in Rome – their first of the campaign – which saved them from slipping out of the world’s top 10 for the first time.

However they’re still struggling for form, style and a settled team.

Hard to believe the last time Wales were here they came within seconds of a Grand Slam!

Instead they will have one eye on events in Murrayfield where Italy face Scotland hoping to relegate Wales back to bottom of the standings.

So, first things first, let’s have a look at the teams…
