CARDIFF, United Kingdom (AFP) - Wales beat France 19-10 in the Six Nations at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Friday to keep their championship title hopes alive.

Warren Gatland's Wales team were held to a 16-all draw by the Irish before seeing off Scotland 27-23 in their opening two matches, but dominated a France side also coming into the Cardiff game undefeated after wins over Italy (23-21) and Ireland (10-9).

Wales fly-half Dan Biggar kicked four penalties, two in each half, and converted George North's second-half breakaway try.

France fly-half Jules Plisson kicked a penalty, with skipper Guilhem Guirado driven over for a consolation try converted by Francois Trinh-Duc to give the scoreline a more sympathetic glean.
