    France looking to keep their slim title hopes alive after their late collapse against England. Can Wales complete one of the more absurd Grand Slam seasons we've seen?

    France going down the line early.

    Hoping for a great game. Not sure who I want to win. Fingers crossed it doesn't come down to ref decisions

    Penaud might be in trouble

    Edit - or not...thought he led with a forearm


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    Two teams, two completely different narratives depending on the result, if France won they are the dominant side in the 6N, if Wales win all of a sudden it’s a close championship between4-5 teams...

    Trysaver from Ollivon.

    Barnes’ communication is just so good there - talks through the process very well

    Dan Biggar on the crash ball for a try.

    Both Welsh scrum feeds straight to the no. 7.
    Cracking game so far.

    You'd be fuming at Gareth Davies if you were Welsh.

    Awful kick.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,744 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    Great try.
    This could be a massive score for both teams

    What was he doing? Is he left footed?

    If France win this, expect the Welsh team to buy some Scottish jerseys and work on their Scottish accents :p


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,906 ✭✭✭✭ PhlegmyMoses


    France are a joy to watch


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Cretin switched off for a second on the line there, was slow to get down.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,744 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    **** me, I've no idea who will win this game.

    2 tries each with both looking like they can score pretty easily


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,433 ✭✭✭✭ thomond2006


    ****ing hell, this game is madness.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,393 ✭✭✭ DellyBelly


    Wales are fantastic.. Never panic and keep coming..


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 13,455 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ednwireland


    19 mins 4 tries mad


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,303 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    This game is nuts.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    That right there is why Wales are on for the slam, 2 attacks, 2 tries. We could learn a thing or two when it comes to taking our chances...

    This looks to be a game that has a drop goal and blocked drop goal in it.

    I think this game will go down to the wire. Each team is playing to their strengths so far and it shows. It is a wonderful game that should produce a fair outcome.

    Wales will pull ahead before half time and never look back


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,303 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Can't see Wales not winning this, based on the first 25 minutes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,518 ✭✭✭✭ GreeBo


    Flipping hell, I'm going to need to pause this every 15 mins just to take a breather!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,594 ✭✭✭ randomname2005


    Hmm, did the Welsh ball carrier move his elbow into the tackler's head?

    Ah but the French guy didn't drop dead on the spot so no foul apparently! :rolleyes:

    Looked like a clear chicken wing while running into the tackler. Lifted the elbow into the outhalf's face.
