France 25-30 Wales rugby LIVE SCORE: Dragons closing in on Grand Slam in Six Nations thriller

WALES are ahead in a thriller against France as they look to win the Grand Slam.

Romain Taofifenua crossed the line just seven minutes into the game to score the opening try for the French.

Dan Biggar ran a brilliant line to tie the scores before a very well worked Dupont try restored France's advantage.

But Josh Navidi levelled things up again before Josh Adams scored a third try for the Dragons.

Here's what Wales have to do to win the Six Nations if they miss out on the Grand Slam.

    68. The Wales defence initially stands firm but after barrage after barrage at the Welsh line the ball is spun out to Brice Dulin who finishes well in the corner.

    The TMO are having a look again though, for a potential illegal French clear out at the breakdown in the build up to the try.

    TRY SCORED!

    BRICE DULIN CROSSES FOR FRANCE!

    GAME ON!

    FRANCE 20-30 WALES

    65. Penalty to France!

    Another Welsh penalty as Wales stray offside from the scrum.

    France choose to have another scrum, with Gael Fickou joining the scrum with Mohamed Haouas in the sin bin.

    TMO REVIEW

    TMO Wayne Barnes is earning his keep this evening.

    France think they've got the ball down from the rolling maul, but referee Luke Pearce thinks the ball is held up.

    Replays suggest it is as well, so it's going to be a France scrum five metres out from the line.

    They are a man light for it though.

    FRANCE 20-30 WALES

    63. Penalty to France!

    Jonathan Davies is penalised for offside so it's another French penalty.

    Ntamack puts the ball into the corner for a France lineout five metres out from the Wales line.

    FRANCE 20-30 WALES

    62. Penalty to France.

    A deliberate knock on by Wales mean that France can send the ball downfield to try and get back into this game.

    The lineout makes good ground and France are knocking on the door here.

    The forwards are having a go at the Wales defence which for now is standing firm.

    FRANCE 20-30 WALES

    61. Into the last twenty minutes in Paris.

    Wales are ten points ahead and have a man extra for the next ten minutes as well.

    It's a real uphill battle for France from this position.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    PENALTY SCORED!

    DAN BIGGAR REMAINS FAULTLESS FROM THE TEE!

    FRANCE 20-30 WALES!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FRANCE 20-27 WALES

    59. Play is coming back for a Welsh penalty after Haouas stops the rolling maul illegally.

    He's sent to the sin bin for his troubles and France are down to fourteen men.

    Dan Biggar will go for the posts to try and add another three points to the scoreboard.

    TMO REVIEW

    OH. MY. GOODNESS.

    Louis Rees-Zammit that is an incredible finish!

    If it's in bounds that is!

    The rolling maul drives forward and nearly reaches the line.

    It's stopped just before the line but the ball is spun out to Louis Rees-Zammit.

    His whole body is out of play in the air but he somehow gets the ball down.

    It looks like he's touched it down on the base flag though, which counts as out of play.

    NO TRY!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FRANCE 20-27 WALES

    57. Penalty to Wales.

    France are penalised for collapsing the maul and Dan Biggar sends the ball downfield and into touch.

    Wales are in good position here to set up another attack.

    FRANCE 20-27 WALES

    56. WHAT A TACKLE!

    Penaud breaks down the left and charges downfield after a mazy run by Brice Dulin.

    He passes it to Thomas on his left as he's tackled, but a brilliant Dan Biggar tackle sends the French winger into touch.

    It will be a Wales lineout, right on the halfway line.

    PENALTY SCORED!

    NTAMACK SENDS IT THROUGH THE POSTS!

    FRANCE 20-27 WALES!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FRANCE 17-27 WALES

    53. The TMO informs Luke Pearce that it is indeed a no hands tackle by Justin Tipuric.

    It's just a French penalty though and Tipuric escapes further punishment.

    Romain Ntamack will go for the posts to try and cut into the Welsh lead.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FRANCE 17-27 WALES

    53. The TMO are having another look at a play here.

    Justin Tipuric may have made a no hands tackle.

    If he has done then he could be in trouble.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FRANCE 17-27 WALES

    52. France have got just under half an hour to keep their Six Nations hopes alive.

    The second half has been all Wales so far, but the French have the ability to flick the switch in an instant.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    FRANCE 17-27 WALES

    51. Dan Biggar adds the two extra points and Wales' lead is now into double digits.

    THEY'RE EDGING CLOSER TOWARDS A GRAND SLAM!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    TRY AWARDED!

    There's no evidence to overturn Luke Pearce's decision so the try will stand!

    That is absolutely HUGE!

  • Giacomo Pisa

    TMO REVIEW!

    Wales think they might have scored here!

    Justin Tipuric puts boot to ball and sends a brilliant low kick forward towards Liam Williams.

    There's a scramble for the ball before the ball pops up into the ball of Josh Adams who is over the line.

    The French think they've held it up but the on field decision is try.

    There isn't lots of conclusive evidence so it might be sticking with the on field decision here!

    There's also a check for a knock on in the build up but there's nothing wrong with that.

    49. Brice Dulin's catching under the high ball tonight has been shaky to say the least.

    He makes a mess of another one, gifting Wales a lineout just outside the French twenty-two.

    47. Ntamack's restart is slapped backwards by a blue hand, so it's French ball in Welsh territory.

    It's a mistake by Alldritt though, as he runs in front of Haouas and stops a Welsh tackle from coming in so it's a penalty for the visitors.

    PENALTY SCORED!

    DAN BIGGAR KICKS WALES INTO THE LEAD!

    45. Penalty to Wales.

    Luke Pearce penalises the French for offside on their own goal line.

    Dan Biggar points to the posts and will try to put Wales in front again.
