Wales flanker Justin Tipuric admits that does not care about personal praise ahead of Saturday's Six Nations showdown with France in Paris.

Wales flanker Justin Tipuric has admitted that he is not concerned with personal praise ahead of Saturday's Six Nations showdown with France in Paris.

Despite the defending champions' 30-22 defeat to Ireland last weekend, the 23-year-old was credited with his country's second-half revival at the Millennium Stadium after coming off the bench.

"I try to stay away from it, keep my head down and keep grounded, ­concentrating on rugby," said Tipuric.

"I don't like much publicity at all, even if it is great support. It is not about me, it's about working for the team. If we get this win and I have done my role right for the team, then I will be happy."

Wales defeated the French 13-6 in Cardiff on their way to winning last year's Six Nations Championship.
