Forwards coach Liza Burgess is fully aware of the challenge ahead in Bourgoin as she has never won on French soil - either as a coach or a player in a distinguished career.
"I thought the girls played extremely well against Ireland. Our set-piece went well and we dominated the scrums. We were in fact so much in control at the scrum we were being pinged for everything from hitting too early and not binding which I thought was a bit harsh.
"But the win against Ireland should give us plenty of confidence for the France game. If we execute everything to 100 per cent and do the simple things right, I see no reason why we can't pull off a win. Some of our decision making has been appalling so we have to cut out all the silly little errors to stand a chance."
Burgess has however been impressed with the progress the young squad has made this season.
"Ashley [Rowlands] and Shona [Powell Hughes] have been brilliant as a unit in the second row. Ash had a great game against Ireland. I think she is finding her feet at this level and what's great is shesoaks up everything like a sponge."
Burgess also paid tribute to loosehead prop Jenny Davies who will be earning her 50th cap for Wales.
"It's a fantastic achievement for any player to get 50 caps but Jenny is on top form at the moment, she's on fire and holds a lot of respect within the squad. She's a real grafter and hasn't looked back this campaign after coming on as a replacement in the first game against England."
