Wales forward Richard Hibbard talks to our reporter Dean Thomas about coming back from injury and his hopes for Saturday's France match.
"We both lost - theirs was a bit more shocking than ours!" he said.
"I think it's going to be two teams that want to win. It's going to be an epic battle."
Wales are preparing for their Six Nations fixture against France in Paris tomorrow.
Interim Head Coach, Rob Howley, announced his team yesterday, with Ryan Jones taking over as captain from injured Sam Warburton.
Wales will be hoping for a positive result, after their defeat against Ireland last weekend.
The Welsh squad left their base in the Vale of Glamorgan this lunchtime as they made the short trip over the Channel to Paris.
The team are due to arrive this evening ahead of Saturday evening's kick off.
Nick Hartley is already there and sent us this report from the French capital.
"France always play a wonderful style of rugby - and they're dangerous" says Wales caretaker coach Rob Howley.
"We've talked about the plan we want to play, and how we implement it, and that's the key about international rugby - making sure the possession and territory early on in the game is on your side".
France have made two changes to the side which lost 23-18 to Italy in the opening game of the Six Nations, ahead of this weekend's clash with Wales in Paris.
Coach Philippe Saint-André has brought powerhouse centre Mathieu Basteraud to partner Maxime Mermoz in midfield, while second row Jocelino Suta replaces Pascale Pape.
Frederic Michalak has retained the outside-half jersey, alongside scrum-half Maxime Machenaud.
Fritz had started the last seven matches for France, going back to last year’s Six Nations defeat in Cardiff, but will have to settle for a place on the bench, in a move that has been clearly directed to target the Welsh centre pairing of Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies.
Three changes have been made to Wales' starting line-up ahead of Saturday's Six Nations match against France.
Ryan Jones will lead the side in place of injured captain Sam Warburton.
France coach Philippe Saint-Andre says despite Wales' weak start to last weekend's Ireland match, he sees a lot of strength in the team.
"I was very impressed in the second half, they kept the ball, they scored three tries, they played with a lot of spirit, a lot of speed".
"We respect Wales a lot. It [Saturday's match] will be a big battle".

France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has made two changes for Saturday's 6 Nations clash against Wales in Paris.
Toulon centre Mathieu Bastareaud replaces Florian Fritz, while Bastareaud's club colleague Jocelino Suta takes over from injured captain Pascal Pape in the second row.
Wales full-back Leigh Halfpenny is confident last weekend's loss to Ireland is not a sign of things to come.
He said, "We are not in crisis. There is one game down and the tournament is still wide open.
"At the end of the day, we are the defending champions, and that means something. We have to go out and play like we are champions."
Interim coach Rob Howley is due to name his side today for the RBS 6 Nations clash against France in Paris on Saturday. Prop Paul James, hooker Richard Hibbard and flanker Justin Tipuric are all probable starters.
And there could also be a role for ex-Wales captain Ryan Jones, who is available again after recovering from a dislocated thumb.
If 70 times-capped Jones is recalled, then Andrew Coombs - an impressive Test debutant in the 30-22 Millennium Stadium defeat against Ireland last weekend - may miss out in what would be viewed as a horses-for-courses selection.
Tipuric, meanwhile, looks set to wear the number seven shirt, with skipper Sam Warburton moving to six, James replacing Gethin Jenkins and Hibbard taking over from Matthew Rees.
It is thought the back division will be unchanged, including another opportunity for Ospreys fly-half Dan Biggar in Wales' number 10 shirt.
Form and history is stacked against Wales, given they have claimed only three away wins at France's expense since 1975 and not beaten another playing Test-playing country for 11 months.
The current run of eight successive defeats is Wales' worst results sequence in 10 years, and their latest French assignment immediately follows Les Bleus' shock defeat to Italy.
