Wales take on France tonight in their Six Nations match in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Their defeat to Ireland was their heaviest in 32 tests in the competition since Warren Gatland took charge.

In preparation for their clash against the French side, the head coach has made three changes to his Wales team, including dropping Mike Phillips. Meanwhile, the Ospreys' Rhys Webb will earn his first start at scrum half.

Wales will need to win to keep alive their hopes of keeping their Six Nations title for an historic third time in succession.
