Wales winning that would have suited us but it's impossible to support them, it really is.

I really really hope so
Wales suffered when France started to force them to play a bit looser which France just do better
If we keep it tight and play a bit of Schmidt ball for 60 minutes before starting to play a bit I think we stand a good chance

Definitely a game we need Hendo for. Would have preferred Doris to be in place by then too.

Yeah, Wales weren't that great today, but they were only 1 or 2 lucky decisions away from the win.

France play with great flair for a few phases/minutes at a time, when they're awesome, but they will also turn off at times. A disciplined team delivering sustained pressure can get to them.

Watching the Welsh Head Coach cry about the French scrummaging illegally was magnificent.

Gary Longwell asked the team doctor to take off his finger so he could play for Ireland and Henderson is missing a game because his kid was born two days ago!!!

They disintegrated a Welsh scrum on their own line with a forward in the bin, it was beautiful.

Their props were giving it loads before the match about how honest they were and how the French were cheats. They can fudge off really.

And as I said in the match thread. The penalty count was 14 penalties, 2YCs and a clear non try awarded against vs 6 penalties. The officials could not have done more for Wales. They can shove their whinging up their holes.

Ntamack is a fun player to watch.
He and Dupont could develop quite the partnership.

Demba Bamba destroyed his opponent for that penalty on the French line. The replay on his side almost brought a tear to the eye.

There was one penalty against Wales where the loose head could not have might more sideways and almost crawled over the scrum. Like waving a white flag.

Who the fcuk do they think they were kidding with this illegal scrummaging shit? It was delightful to watch them get minced by Bamba near the end

It'll be some f**king match if it's a GS decider against France.
Obviously can't wait for tomorrow, hate Sunday matches though.

It looks to me like England are rattled and have hit that Jones' slump all the Aussies were warning about.
