Off-field dramas could make France more dangerous

The Welsh captain Sam Warburton says his side is preparing for the best from France in this Saturday's Rugby World cup semi-final.

Warburton admits it's hard to know what side will turn up, given France's inconsistent performances at the tournament.

But he says they are a quality team and it surprises him when they don't play well, and says the Welsh side will be concentrating on its own performance and anticipating the best from France.

He says reports that the players and coach have fallen out could make the French side more dangerous and give them a license to play.
