North points the way for Wales

A second-half try from George North helped Wales to the top of the Six Nations table with a hard-earned victory over France in Cardiff.

Match Commentary

81'FULL TIME!

ESPN's Martyn Thomas had this to say straight from Cardiff:

"Wales remain on course for a fourth championship success under Warren Gatland, and they owe that fact to a committed defensive effort in Cardiff. The Principality Stadium roof failed to close ahead of kick off and thereafter the match refused to catch light. The game turned on an error from Jules Plisson that spared George North's blushes and allowed the wing to score the game's decisive try. This is not a match that will live long in the memory but then Wales have yet to hit top gear in any of their three outings so far. They head to Twickenham in a fortnight unbeaten, however, and starring down a potential championship decider."
