France 20-7 Wales LIVE! Six Nations 2023 match stream, latest score and rugby updates today

Six Nations Super Saturday continues in Paris this afternoon as Les Bleus hope to keep their title hopes alive. The defending champions must win handsomely at the Stade de France and then hope for a huge favour from old rivals England in Dublin later to destroy Ireland’s Grand Slam dreams and pip the world’s top-ranked team at the last. Unlikely yes, but stranger things have happened.

France should hold up their end of the bargain as they return to home soil today, fresh from a seven-try, 43-point rout at Twickenham last weekend that was England’s heaviest-ever home defeat. Confidence will now be back to soaring levels in Fabien Galthie’s camp after their first Six Nations win on English territory since 2005, just what they needed with the small matter of a home Rugby World Cup looming in the autumn.

Warren Gatland’s Welsh side have endured a dismal tournament for the most part against a backdrop of an ongoing domestic crisis in the sport, though should at least avoid the wooden spoon after that much-needed bonus-point win in Rome last weekend. Follow France vs Wales in the Six Nations live below!

France 20-7 Wales

A great start from Wales, who deservedly took the lead through George North’s easy early try.

However, the French have taken control since then, with tries from Damian Penaud and Jonathan Danty plus a pair of Thomas Ramos penalties.

This may well be damage limitation for Warren Gatland’s side from here.


Watch: Danty goes over for second French try


36 mins: Penaud has been excellent for France so far and the French fans want North punished for deflecting his pass there.

He then leads another dangerous attack that is just about repelled by Biggar, giving Wales lineout ball midway inside their own half.

Wales need half-time here.


TRY! France 20-7 Wales | Jonathan Danty 34′

34 mins: Ruthless!

France attack with real menace down the left, with wonderful passing and footwork as half-back pairing Ntamack and Dupont link up to superb effect.

The Welsh defence is completely narrowed so France quickly move right, with three passes including a final one from Penaud to Danty, who sprints and dives over in the right corner.

Ramos’ conversion sneaks in off the far post! Feels harsh on Wales, but they are now in a 13-point hole approaching half-time.


PENALTY! France 13-7 Wales | Thomas Ramos 29′

29 mins: A Welsh pass is flung well behind Biggar, leaving Wales scrambling.

They manage to get hold of it but we end up with a scrum from which the visiting pack are put under big pressure.

It’s another penalty, which the unshakeable Ramos duly bangs over. The French lead moves out to six points.


PENALTY! France 10-7 Wales | Thomas Ramos 26′

26 mins: This is why Wales have been largely trying to avoid the breakdown early on, because the rucking and jackalling from France is supreme.

Faletau is brought down by a combination of Marchand and Cros, with the hooker then instantly getting his hefty frame over the ball.

The penalty is in easily kickable territory and Ramos duly obliges to give France the lead for the first time today.


24 mins: A spot of kick tennis as Ramos looks to give France an advantage in that area.

Alun Wyn Jones has gone off for a HIA, so Dafydd Jenkins is on for Wales for now.


23 mins: France’s attack just isn’t firing quite yet and a spill from Fickou is punted forward by North as Wales race forward to pile on yet more pressure.

Eventually the hosts gather calmly and the composed Dupont is able to fire out into touch near halfway.


22 mins: More Welsh pressure after the set-piece as Beard tries to crash through the line, but he’s brought down by Baille and it’s ultra-quick jackalling from Taofifenua to earn a penalty.


20 mins: Wales are getting such quick ball here as they glide into the 22 once again, offloading fast and furiously to avoid France’s formidable rucking that destroyed England last week.

The handling is good, but so is the French tackling as Alun Wyn Jones is held up and looks for a quick offload out the back that North can’t bring in.
