Captain Alun Wyn Jones returns to the pack along with flanker Josh Navidi, prop Rob Evans and hooker Ken Owens, while Aaron Shingler is on the bench.

Fly-half Gareth Anscombe kicked three conversions and a penalty, while substitute Leigh Halfpenny added two conversions, although Italy initially refused to go quietly.

Although England have missed out on the chance to retain their Six Nations crown, Ireland sealing a grand slam with a win on English soil this weekend could mean big business for British pubs, according to Worldpay.

"There have been some tough selection calls, but that is exactly what we want, we want to be in a position where there are selections and decisions to be made and we have had to make some tough ones this weekend".

"But we aimed to come second when it was the best we could achieve and we did that".

"Saturday is a huge opportunity for us to finish the campaign well, at home in front of our fans", Gatland said, predicting a French team in fine spirits after their 22-16 win over England.

"That is the difference between winning the championship and finishing third or fourth".

Commenting on the data, Worldpay executive vice-president, United Kingdom and Europe, Steve Newton said: "The Six Nations is always a busy period for pub owners, and for some businesses, the tournament can be more important than Christmas".

Siri needs these features to catch up with the competition
It appears that Apple is thinking of Siri less as a feature and more as a core part of its operating systems. This may (according to a source) be attributable to an Apple plan to launch the HomePod without Siri.

Their recent home record against the French is good too, with four wins from the last five.

We have improved as a team in the last six-eight months, and we have to keep working and trying to improve.

But while Les Bleus began the tournament with successive defeats against Ireland and Scotland, they recovered impressively to see off Italy in Marseille before last weekend's eye-catching dismissal of England.

"It's going to be a close encounter and a very physical game".

"You've got to stop them from going forward, whether it is at the set-piece or stopping them from coming around the corner".

But they were briefly reduced to 13 players after scrum-half Gareth Davies received a yellow card for a deliberate knock-on, while head coach Warren Gatland sent on Halfpenny as a replacement for Williams.

"It's not about giving him a clip around the ear and stuff", Gatland added.

"You want that emotion in his game, and it's just being able to handle that every now and then. It wasn't a long chat, and once you have that you don't bring it up again and talk about it".
