In just over a month’s time thousands of United fans will be making the trip over to France for United’s Champions League clash with PSG. In the meantime though, it’s the Rugby world that turns it’s attention to the city of lights. Wales travel to France for the Six Nation’s opener tonight in a game that’s dividing opinion.
Both teams will want to get not just the Six Nations, but the rugby year as a whole off to a good start.
Les Bleus have had their share of issues off the field in the past and will look to put all that behind them.
Warren Gatland’s Wales side are enjoying a run of nine straight wins and will enter tonight’s game full of confidence.
A game against France in Paris is never an easy prospect and although Jacques Brunel’s side are inconsistent, you’d expect them to be fully fired up tonight.
France’s footballers have restored a lot of national sporting pride with their recent World Cup win. French rugby fans will want to see their team follow suit.
Winning the Six Nations would make it a great period in French sport history.
So who will triumph near the Arc de Triumphe? Will Emile Ntamack’s 19 year-old son Romain making his debut help his team follow in his father’s footsteps? Or could Tomos Williams be the debutant who’s celebrating by helping the Welsh to victory?
RedArmyBet sat down with two legends of the rugby world Andy Goode and Jim Hamilton to get their take on tonight’s clash.
