Paul James in line for 60th Wales cap

24 February 2015

Bath Rugby's Paul James is in line to make his 60th international appearance for Wales in Saturday's Six Nations clash against France in Paris (k.o. 17.00). 

The loosehead from Neath is named on the replacements bench at the Stade de France, having come on to great effect at Murrayfield in Wales's previous tournament outing. 

"We felt we improved against Scotland and we are looking for another improvement this weekend," said Wales head coach Warren Gatland. "It's a tough competition to go on the road and ask for that but that is what we are looking for."
