Security will be tightened for Six Nations matches at Paris' Stade de France following the terror attacks on the French capital in November.

The France national football side's friendly against Germany was targeted on November 13.

"There will be very strict controls for fans and everyone else entering the Stade de France," the French Rugby Federation (FFR) said.

"The FFR therefore invites all supporters to get to the stadium early, gates will open two hours before kick-off.

"The national police and security officers have planned a number of checkpoints around the stadium to cut down on queues at the gates where controls will be increased."

France kick off the Six Nations against Italy on February 6.
