France vs Wales rugby: Kick-off time, TV channel, live stream free and teams for huge Six Nations match

WALES take on France as they bid for a second Grand Slam in three years TONIGHT.

The Dragons have confounded their critics to move within one match of completing the slam, but this game could prove to be their toughest.

France still harbour their own Six Nations hopes but must secure the right result against Wayne Pivac's men and then again against Scotland next Friday.

The Welsh, meanwhile, do not need a victory to be sure of the title.
