Agar wary of Wales

France coach Richard Agar is treating Wales with caution ahead of the two countries’ clash at Cardiff Arms Park on Friday evening.

The French were heavily beaten 84-4 by England at Leigh last weekend, but Agar’s squad has been boosted by the return of skipper Theo Fages, as well as Tony Gigot and Jason Baitieri.

“Last weekend’s game was a very difficult day for us,” said Agar.

“Friday gives us the perfect opportunity to put it behind us. “We have some welcome returns to the team giving us an injection of experience and quality. 

Wales had a great start and certainly look a lot stronger in the pack, with the back three doing a great job for them.”
