Dragons stars help fire Wales comeback


Ross Moriarty, Cory Hill, Elliott Dee and Aaron Wainwright all featured as Wales staged a dramatic second-half fightback to beat France and make a dramatic winning start to the Six Nations.

The hosts started superbly and surged into a 16-0 half-time lead with tries from Louis Picamoles and Yoann Huget.

But after an error-strewn first 40 minutes, Wales were unrecognisable in the second as scrum half Tomos Williams and wing George North crossed to put them 17-16 ahead.

Camille Lopez put France back in front but North intercepted a wild pass to seal Wales' 10th straight win.

Moriarty started the game while Hill, Dee and Wainwright were all second half replacements as Wales secured a 10th successive win for the first time since 1999.
