Wales going for history here they've never beaten France in the World Cup. France are only the second NH team to make the final three times.

EDIT: Wendigo7 pointed out England did it first 91, 03, 07.

Will they cope with the favourites tag this time? All pressure’s on them.

I'm a bit nervous

They have a serious scrum and a decent pack & there'll be plenty of knock-ons if today is anything to go by....

I'm hoping we hang on for the first 60 & hopefully pip it when they tire

If they beat us then they will have deserved the victory. I hope for a good game.

Wales have won 7/8 against France

We’re 2 in the world, they’re 8th.

In the Gatland era, we’ve won 4 titles to their 1.

They’re poor, make no mistake. They’re ill-disciplined, lazy and mentally and emotionally frail.


As such, France by 20.

Sickening. You can be sure Guirado will be reading out these sorts of post during their pre-match smoke to motivate the French boys.

The only thing that motivates the French is adultery and a trade union dispute.

One big meaty Welsh thrust into their line and the french will down tools and surrender quicker than they did in WW2.

For all France's mediocre play recently, I think this one will be close not the least for the fact that most of the games between those teams have been close in last few years (for example,there were no more than 5pts difference in the last 3 meetings between them).

Actually, you're having a laugh or you must be drunk cause if there is one thing you should target in that French team, that's their pack.
Our backs on the other hand can give you plenty of trouble.

We made the first final ever. :proud:

But that was at a time when the French could truly beat any team on a good day.

Wales by 3, after 100min.

The French team that day:

Serge Blanco
Didier Camberabero
Philippe Sella
Denis Charvet
Patrice Lagisquet
Franck Mesnel
Pierre Berbizier
Laurent Rodriguez
Dominique Erbani
Éric Champ
Jean Condom
Alain Lorieux
Jean-Pierre Garuet-Lempirou
Daniel Dubroca (c)
Pascal Ondarts

How many legends in that team? Won the grand slam in the 5N that year as well.

This thread will probably reflect the game. Plenty of good spirit, pashun, and fairness. There will be no nastiness. The French are our kindred spirits. The french way, the welsh way...the rugby way.

I just hope the 'neutrals' don't infest this thread with their usual diatribe and ruin it for us good Welsh and French posters.

And Lorieux had sold his soul and his hamstring to charge down Campese's clearance in the last seconds of the semi to allow Blanco to score
