    The ill discipline by Irish, Scottish and French players with the red cards had helped Wales so much.. And then tonight the last 10 mins of the game there, Wales had there lack of discipline, Liam Williams was so stupid with his yellow card.. So funny😂😂😂

    Can't believe it finished 14 v 14, unreal, especially with 2 Welsh in the bin.

    It didn't Wales with 2 yellows

    The decision making for the last 2 passes was brilliant. Not skip passing, basic but brilliant.

    I never thought I could enjoy matches without crowds but today was brilliant

    That was such a mad game. Ridiculous.

    That miss conversion could end up making a difference. France +41, Wales +61. 20 points difference would've only been 16 with the conversion.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,921 ✭✭✭✭BonnieSituation


    You love to see it.


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


    Super Saturday delivered. Magnificent.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,443 ✭✭✭✭Kermit.de.frog


    Delighted with that. Wales are a cynical dirty team and France deserved it anyway.

    Simple stuff. Works well 15v14, works even better 14v13.

    Justice!!!

    Totally.. more serious cynical Welsh play and agin a referee seemingly blind.... especially in those last 5 minutes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 456 ✭✭Blackheath


    Liam Williams what was he thinking???


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,234 ✭✭✭✭Akrasia


    Maddest end to the maddest 6 nations ever

    And yeah I know it’s not even over yet. What will happen on Friday??


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,149 ✭✭✭mangobob


    The great thing about that result is that the Scotland game is not a dead rubber. Something to tune in for.

    Allez les bleus indeed.

    Everyone loves a happy ending :D

    Ah lads, pity we couldn't be watching that in a pub. Hopefully next year's Super Saturday is just as entertaining.

    Defo next year fella. We will be watching the autumn internationals in the pub

    World rugby need to have a long look at that scenario where a team can commit 5 yellow card offences during 5 separate advantage phases in defence and get away with every one of them because the final offence is committed by the attacking team. It’s ridiculous. That and stop the clock on scrum resets.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 ✭✭✭kilns


    No sympathy for Wales today

    France have alot of improving to do though

    Yeah, they were held very well to pull the Welsh in before releasing instead of rushing it out wide as quick as possible.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,556 ✭✭✭clsmooth


    Wales will rue Liam Williams’ stupid yellow. On one hand you have to feel for Wales but on the other they got every conceivable piece of luck and were extremely cynical in the last 10 mins and even with 2 yellows they got away lightly.

    Surprised ‘Barnesy’ wasn’t called on to check that last pass :eek:


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,576 ✭✭✭✭thebaz


    Thankfully rugby won out - great day of rugby. goodnight

    That missed conversion could be crucial, if I'm not mistaken. France have to beat Scotland by more than 20 points (with a bonus point) to win the championship. Had that gone over, a win by more than 16 would have sufficed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,073 ✭✭✭✭vienne86


    It didn't Wales with 2 yellows

    + Lukey and Barnsey on their side.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Watching it on BBC was a gamble but it’s paid off. Jonathan Davies was very fair it has to be said, Brian Moore is crying because Scotland didn’t get a walkover vs France, Jamie Roberts saying “france didn’t play until the red card” and now praising Pearce for enforcing the 5 second rule.

    Ah bliss, trés bien.


    Shout out for the sneaky swinging arm attempted tackle by the Welsh sun scrum half on Dulin there too.

    Williams could have gone earlier because he was lying all over rucks before the French Red. He is a great player but also a brain injury at times. Had the Welsh held their discipline, who knows where that all ends up

    Only way to depower defences is automatic cards after 5 pens, then every 3 thereafter. Obviously foul play is dealt with differently too but it means its equally applied across the board.

    Pen advantage counts.

    Don't count you luck yet. Scotland to win next week.

    Is Barnes starting at 10?

    Cynical, not dirty.

    Dirty is Genge on Johnny Sexton.
