Commentator: French not getting much momentum. This welsh defence is working very well. French try.

We did this with Anscombe in a world cup warm up game and it may have ended his career.
I know, it's what I was referring to. And another friendly too, really not worth the risk.

Added to the risk to Biggar, a limp player is also a risk to the team.
Rugby needs to get over the 'tough guy who would need to lose a limb before coming off' thing. It should be about what's best for the team, which in most circumstances means having 15 uninjured players on the field, and preventing injuries from getting worse so the player is available for the next match.

Good French try even though Vakatawa's offload might have been forward.
Dupont seems to always be on the right place to support his teammates breaks, very underrated quality

Wales shoot up and the gap in midfield between the fly half and centre is huge.

Every single time.

Who was the Welsh centre sprinting massively out of the line? Left a gap I could have run through.

There will never be a bigger disaster than letting Sean Edwards go because he wanted a 4 year contract not a 2 year. Every single pivac Welsh performance has been under pinned by awful awful defence. The attack is still as aimless as it ever was just they also now can't defend. People running wru are some real thickos
