Neil Jenkins: Wales squad 'urgency' ahead of France game

We were disappointed with the first half last week and the result and everyone is keen to get back on the pitch and get the match underway. It’s a huge game for us and we can’t wait.

The boys are ready to go. The captain’s run went well today and there is that urgency about the squad, they want to get today out of the way and get out on the field and play.

We started poorly last week but we put together some good rugby in the second half and we want to take that into tomorrow.

We know that we have to play that way for 80 minutes and we have to put France under as much pressure as possible.

– Neil Jenkins, Wales assistant coach
