Half-time score: Wales 10-3 France

Wales stand five points ahead of France at half time, despite missing two penalties.

Fans first observed a minute’s silence to remember former Wales captain and Lions star Mervyn Davies, who died this week at the age of 65.

France put the first points on the board with a penalty by Dimitri Yachvili.

But a superb try by Alex Cuthbert at 21 minutes, converted by Leigh Halfpenny, put Wales firmly in the lead.

Another penalty by Halfpenny added three to the difference.
