Wales head coach Rowland Phillips believes Saturday's 39-19 defeat to France in Brive will prove an invaluable experience for his players as his side now prepare for the Women's Rugby World Cup which will be staged in Ireland this summer.
After an improved performance against Ireland last weekend, Wales probably face their toughest match against France this weekend. France are never an easy team to play against and especially playing them on their own turf.
Following a tense 12-7 loss to Ireland Women at the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday, flanker Rachel Taylor and fly-half Robyn Wilkins gave us their thoughts on a match which saw tributes paid to Elli Norkett.
Former Wales prop Jenny Davies witnessed an improved performance against Ireland in the Women's Six Nations clash against Ireland, but is hoping Rowland Phillips side can find a clinical edge when they face France in the final round next weekend.
Despite a narrow defeat, try-scorer Shona Powell-Hughes believes Elli Norkett would have been proud of the effort Wales Women put in against a very good Irish side in the Women's Six Nations, as WRU TV's Graeme Gillespie discovers.
Starting at fly-half for the first time in this season's Women's Six Nations is 21-year-old Robyn Wilkins, who hopes to turn a pre-tournament friendly win against Ireland into the real thing at the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park tomorrow.
