Tensions are high as Wales prepare to take on France in Cardiff on Saturday, and Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones has hit back at France's claims that Wales were disrespectful with their scrum "cheat" claims.

France coach Fabien Galthie responded to Wales prop Wyn Jones' suggestion the visiting scrum will "cheat" when the sides meet in Cardiff this weekend, saying the comments demonstrate a lack of respect for the whole country.

"It's a lack of respect for our scrum, a lack of respect for our team, a lack of respect for French rugby but also for our nation," he told a press conference.

"This is the Six Nations tournament and in the Six Nations tournament there is no room for these kind of remarks."
