Centre Jonathan Davies says Wales are ready to "pounce" on any mistakes made by Ireland and England in the race for the 2015 Six Nations title.

Wales kept their championship hopes alive with a 20-13 win against France in Paris.

They are third in the table behind England and leaders Ireland who they play in Cardiff on Saturday, 14 March.

"We're keeping ourselves in there and making sure that if someone slips up we can be there to pounce," said Davies.

Wales have recovered from defeat in their opening match at home to England with wins on the road against Scotland and France.

Fly-half Dan Biggar went over for Wales' try and full-back Leigh Halfpenny kicked five penalties to seal a fourth consecutive victory over the French.

England are ahead of the Welsh on points difference after losing 19-9 in Dublin to Ireland, who are the only side with a 100% record with two matches to go.

Wales have won the title after losing the opening game in the past - bouncing back after an opening 30-22 defeat by Ireland in 2013.

However, Ireland and England have much better point differences than Wales' +5.

The championship leaders are on +40 while England are +25.

Clermont Auvergne centre Davies believes there is hope for a repeat of the 2013 championship, and warned there is more to come from Wales.

"I think the longer we stay together, we get better," he said.

"I think we can improve vastly, if we keep working on what was good [against France] and cut out the errors."
