Gatland drops Phillips for Six Nations clash with France

Warren Gatland has made three changes to his Wales team to take on France at the Millennium Stadium on Friday night.

The coach has shown himself to be not afraid of dropping a famous face - with Mike Phillips cut from the side that was heavily beaten by Ireland last time out.

It is a game Wales need to win to keep alive their hopes of clinching the Six Nations title for an historic third time in succession.
