Mike Phillips says that Wales need to play with "no fear" against France on Saturday.

Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips has admitted that the team need to play with "no fear" when they face France in the Six Nations on Saturday.

Wales were beaten 30-22 by Ireland in their opener at the weekend, while France were surprisingly beaten 23-18 by Italy.

"We need to back ourselves and come out of our shells and really go for it. We need to play with no fear from the start, we've got to cut the mistakes out and have belief," the 30-year-old told reporters.

Wales have not won in Paris since 2005.
