Ireland try

And so Wales' losing run continues.

Rob Howley's class of 2013 became the first Wales team in history to lose five straight games at home when they lost their opening Six Nations game against Ireland last weekend.

Not since 1996 has a side lost their opening match and gone on to win the tournament. Guess who did that? France.

Guess who's next up for Wales? You got it - France.

Wales' recent record in Paris gives them little hope, but on this week's Sport Wales presenter Dot Davies will be in France to speak to former Les Blues captain and coach Pierre Berbizier ahead of the game.

As well as getting the latest from the French camp, we'll take a look at the three changes Wales have made to their side to take on Les Bleus.

How will Justin Tipuric do taking over from injured skipper Sam Warburton as Wales open-side flanker? Has Ryan Jones recovered enough from a thumb injury? Is Richard Hibbard a better hooker than Matthew Rees? We'll have the answers, plus hear from Mike Phillips, the Welshman doing his damage on a weekly basis out in France.

Away from rugby we will have two features on two very different sporting characters.

Sport Wales will introduce you to Cardiff City's newest signing Fraizer Campbell

He needed only two touches to score on his Bluebirds debut, so we will be getting the lowdown from him and seeing if he's the final player needed to blast Cardiff into the Premier League.

And with the Wales Open snooker about to get underway, we will be talking 147's with Wales' number 1 Mark Williams.
