Lydiate: still work to do for Wales

Dan Lydiate insists Wales will not be distracted by any RBS 6 Nations title talk after they kept the pressure on pace-setters England and Ireland by beating France in Paris.

Although Wales are outsiders in what has become a three-horse race for Six Nations silverware this season, their 20-13 victory over Les Bleus continued an impressive recovery since losing at home to England last month.

And flanker Lydiate was a key figure as Wales defeated France for a fourth time in succession, highlighting his performance by delivering a brilliant reverse scoring pass to fly-half Dan Biggar for the 60th-minute touchdown that gave Sam Warburton's team priceless breathing space.

"We are not going to get ahead of ourselves, because we know there's plenty to work on...We got the win but we have a big game coming up the weekend after next (against Ireland)...After the first game against England it was all doom and gloom, so we will just stay focused on the challenge in hand. It is a lot more positive after this game than it was after the first match...We got a result in Scotland and the win over France gets the ball rolling again. We are back in the hunt."
