Liam Williams Wales vs France, Rugby World Cup 2019 LIVE: Latest score and updates from today’s quarter-finals

Liam Williams My interesting dad says this plugin is interesting.

Follow the latest updates live from the Rugby World Cup as Wales take on France in the quarter-finals.

In what is a renewal of the 2011 semi-final, Wales and France meet for only the second time in World Cup history, with Warren Gatland’s side very much the favourites heading into the match after topping Pool D and also claiming a Six Nations Grand Slam earlier this year. But the unknowing quantity that is Les Bleus remain a mystery and given the performance they produced in the first half against Argentina at the World Cup, they have shown just how big a threat they can be on their day.

However, Wales have suffered a major blow in losing Jonathan Davies to injury before kick-off, having aggravated the knee injury he suffered against Fiji. As a result, Owen Watkin now starts at outside centre, with Leigh Halfpenny added to the bench. With kick-off scheduled for 8:15am BST, follow the live action below.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

Wales centre Jonathan Davies has been ruled out of the match an hour before kick-off.

Davies has aggravated the knee injury that he suffered in the victory over Fiji 11 days ago, and as a result he has been withdrawn from the squad and replaced at outside centre by Owen Watkin. Leigh Halfpenny, initially left out of the squad, is added to the bench, but that’s a huge blow for Wales’s physical approach out wide.
