"We are expecting a tough game in Wales because they will be looking to finish the tournament on a high," Laporte said. "The French players have plenty of motivation because they know that if they win, then they should win the tournament. We must concentrate on ourselves and make sure we hit top form."
France Team Manager Jo Maso added: "We have won fourteen tournaments in one hundred years so we know it's not easy to win the RBS Six Nations. Wales might have struggled against Italy but they have plenty of fighting spirit. They have a strong defence and are dangerous with the ball in hand."
