Sam Warburton is fit for the Six Nations showdown against France. Warburton is Wales' only starting change for the game at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. Justin Tipuric loses his place, despite an impressive performance against Italy last week.

The pressure is on for Wales as they take on the team that knocked them out of the World Cup in October. Warren Gatland's side have already beaten England, Ireland, Scotland and Italy, and will secure a third Grand Slam in eight years if they win on Saturday.

*Wales team to face France: *L Halfpenny, A Cuthbert, J Davies, J Roberts, G North, R Priestland, M Phillips, G Jenkins, M Rees, A Jones, AW Jones, I Evans, D Lydiate, T Faletau.

*Subs: *K Owens, P James, L Charteris, R Jones, L Williams, J Hook, S Williams.
