France and Wales have played each other at rugby union since 1908. A total of 92 matches have been played, with Wales winning 46 times, France winning 43 times and 3 matches drawn.

The early years of the fixture were dominated by Wales, who won 18 of the first 19 matches up to the point when France were expelled from the Five Nations Championship after the 1931 tournament. Since the competition resumed in 1947 results have slightly favoured France who have won 43 of the 74 matches played, including 27 of the last 36 matches up to February 2013. The teams have met once in the Rugby World Cup with France winning the 2011 semi-final match.
