Tip Wales - France
Wales may be the current Six Nations Grand Slam winners but they have never made it to a Rugby World Cup final. They bid to reach the semi-finals for only the third time when taking on France. Wales won Pool D winning all of their matches. That included a tight win over Australia and although they had to come from behind to beat Fiji, they come into this match in good form.
France finished second in their pool behind England. They only had to play three games due to the match against England being cancelled due to the poor weather. That will see them come into this game a bit fresher than their opponents as their last match was played on October 6, two weeks before this match. France may have finished second but they only beat Argentina and Tonga by a combined aggregate of four points. They just don't look in the form to get a win in this game, back Wales to win the match.
Key points Wales - France
Wales have won all their matches so far.
France are unbeaten but had wins over Argentina and Tonga by just two points in each match.
France have only won one of their last eight games against Wales.
Conclusion Wales - France
Wales are the clear form pick for this quarter final against France. They have won all of their pool matches including a win over Australia. France will have benefited from a rest and not having to play the English side in their final game but could easily have lost to both Tonga and Argentina. Back Wales to get the win here.
