Navidi could well have been injured he did come off soon after I think. He has missed a couple of tackles this tournament so I don't know if its a bit of a chronic issue. It feels like we are missing Faletau, he is such a strong ball carried and Moriarty isn't doing what he needs to at the moment, plus he's a card magnet. Wainwright is coming on and will hopefully solve any problems we have at 6. If Faletau can get fit again then Navidi/Wainwright/Faletau could give us a very strong backrow.
Thanks. Wainwright is a very good player indeed. I like Tipuri a lot but he did not have a good game today. You do miss Faletau, true, had forgotten about his absence...

Still amazed that we performed so well in the rucks and turned over so much Welsh possession, that is usually not our forte.
Wales seem quite happy for the opposition to have the ball and at time your boys made it seem like Wales weren't even on the pitch.

As an aside, I've played in a scratch game where someone got badly injured. An ambulance had to be called and then got bogged down in the pitch so we had to push it off.

At the reset scrum, our no8, who was never the fittest lad, failed to get to the scrum and we got penalised for not having no8 on our own scrum. I've always wondered whether this was actually in the laws or if the (shite) ref we had was pulling it out of his arse

Apparently the law states:
When a team is reduced to fewer than 15 for any reason, then the number of players in each team in the scrum may be similarly reduced. Where a permitted reduction is made by one team, there is no requirement for the other team to make a similar reduction. However, a team must not have fewer than five players in the scrum.
So if you had 15 on the field ref was right.

Glad I didn't get up at 3am to watch the game, just saw the replay not knowing the result

Too bad we lost, everything has been said already about the game and the red card, this idiot should never play with EDF again.

For his last game Guirado costed us the first Welsh try by loosing the ball on contact, pleased to see him gone as this unbelievable awful coach & staff.

Hoping Wales beats SA.

He was fat, unfit, and knackered from pushing an ambulance carrying an opponent off the park and just didn't get to the scrum. I felt it was harsh

France won the dress-ups quarter-final. Saw a whole bunch of them dressed up in Napoleonic old guard uniforms. :thumbup:

He asked if the ball clearly went forward from the rip, TMO said it didn’t.
Just replayed in the studio, the ball clearly went back at first after the rip.
:lol: I'll leave you to it. Wales got out of jail. They always looked like they would though as France just didn't have the control
Just reviewed the laws, a rip can't be deemed forward. The ref may have just been checking if it was a rip or a knock-on.

https://laws.worldrugby.org/?law=11&language=EN

11 Knock-on or throw forward

5.The ball is not knocked-on, and play continues, if:

a.A player knocks the ball forward immediately after an opponent has kicked it (charge down).

b.A player rips or knocks the ball from an opponent and the ball goes forward from the opponent’s hand or arm.

That doesn't say a rip can't be a knock on by the defender.

The red card was textbook and no one would have any issues with it, but spectacularly unprofessional to pose for a photo mocking it.

Yeah... no issue with the red card, nor did I feel he favored the Welsh, but that is an unprofessional behaviour which deserves a suspension from duty.
