Wales' six nations match against France has got off to a good start.
They stormed eight points clear inside six minutes through a Leigh Halfpenny penalty and a George North try.
Halfpenny opened the scoring through a 48-metre strike, before Wales attacked from deep via Halfpenny and wing Liam Williams before North capitalised on defensive hesitancy between France full-back Brice Dulin and scrum-half Jean-Marc Doussain to pounce for the touchdown.
Halfpenny missed the conversion attempt, but he quickly made amends by landing another long-range penalty and Wales could reflect on a dream start, leading 11-0 after just nine minutes.
France looked as though they had cut the deficit when wing Yoann Huget danced his way over Wales' line, but play was called back following a knock-on by Les Bleus skipper Pascal Pape as he tackled Wales fly-half Rhys Priestland, and the home side escaped.
It was a breathless opening, but France needed to establish a foothold in the game, and they opened their account through a Doussain penalty.
