Damian Penaud, Romain Taofifenua miss France's Six Nations clash vs Wales with Covid france xv against wales

Due to Covid, France wing Damien Penaud and second row Romain Taofifenua will both miss Friday’s Six Nations match against Wales in Cardiff, with Les Bleus head coach Fabien Galthie also prepared for more alterations.

“We were notified this morning that they were positive so we had to make last-minute changes. We’re getting ready to make other changes.” – France head coach Fabien Galthie on Covid outbreak in Les Bleus camp ahead of Friday’s Round 4 Six Nations clash vs Wales at Principality Stadium

“We were notified this morning that they were positive so we had to make last-minute changes,” Galthie told a press conference on Wednesday.

“We’re getting ready to make other changes.”

Yoram Moefana will move to the right-wing in place of Penaud, who started the game against Scotland, which France won 36-17 at Murrayfield. Gabin Villiere will return to the left wing.

“Being the favourites will not mean anything on Friday,” said general manager Raphael Ibanez. “In the last 10 years, Wales won the Six Nations four times. We have not.”
