As a preview to this weekends Six Nations decider between Wales and France, here is a fantastic clip from the classic match in 2005 between the same two nations.
This documentary style footage tells the story of a great day in Paris, when the French flair and pace put Wales to the ultimate test.
Inspired by Martyn Williams with two tries, and Stephen Jones with as accurate a boot as ever, Wales came out winners 24-18 and later went on to win the Grand Slam for that year.
This weekend's showdown between the two sides should be a classic, with both teams having shown that they like to throw the ball around and play exciting rugby.
It's tough to call this one, but I reckon Wales may just have the edge, especially with the 75 000 faithful cheering on their every move.
