Wales players celebrate beating France

Wales moved to within a draw of winning the European Championship for the first time since 2010 with a 14-6 win over France at Cardiff Arms Park.

A draw or victory against Ireland on Saturday, 7 November in Bray would secure the title, having beaten holders Scotland in the tournament opener.

France, who beat Ireland last weekend, now have not won a Test in south Wales since 1948.

Dalton Grant, Joe Burke and Courtney Davies scored tries for Wales.

Davies also added a conversion to give the hosts a 14-0 lead, before Mickael Simon scored under the posts for France and William Barthau quickly landed the extras.
