Wales Under-20 boss Phil Davies has challenged his side to fight fire with fire when they lock horns with France on Friday.
Davies’ side bounced back from their opening 41-14 defeat to England by beating Scotland 20-12 on February 12.
Wales have named Blues academy pair Josh Navidi and Rhys Downes as captain and vice-captain for the Cardiff Arms Park clash.
But with France undefeated in this year’s campaign, Davies admits his side will have to combat their brute strength if Wales are to record back-to-back wins.
"We are expecting a physical challenge from France and the back row selection, along with picking five forwards on the bench reflects that,” said Davies.
“We want to win every game but we also want to maximise the potential of every player within our squad.
“Around 30 players have been involved with us so far this season which bodes well for the Junior World Championship in June and looking ahead at next season.”
