The game, at the Stade de France, will be only the second time the nations have met. The last time they did was back in 1982 in Toulouse where an Ian Rush goal gave Wales a 1-0 victory.

Wales will head to Paris still uncertain over the future of manager Chris Coleman who told ITV News that he is considering his future in the job following Wales’ failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Coleman’s current contract runs out in November with no new deal yet to be agreed. It is however understood that both the FAW and Wales players are keen to keep Coleman in the job.

The lifeboat crew at Cardigan was paged at 11:18am to a group of people in the water but the volunteer crew were stood down before the lifeboat launched.

The RNLI has since issued a warning about the weather.

Stormy conditions may be tempting to watch but big waves can easily knock you off your feet. The sea is far more powerful than you think and your chances of survival are slim if you are dragged into the swell. Our volunteer lifeboat crews will always launch to rescue those in danger at sea, but to launch into conditions like these could also put their lives at risk.
