Wales - so close, but yet so far !

Post by LAFOLIE »

Good to see Wales playing better rugby this evening against the French. Sadly, they just couldn't finish it. Without question, Wales played a better format of rugby. However, with Lee Byrne's two important miss kicks and Wales not getting their act together in the 1st half, really cost them the game. However, it was great to See Wales fight back and putting the French under real pressure. Must of been around 10 mins where the French lost their game plan, sadly Wales did not capitalise on this. There were great moments of Welsh flair, especially with Shane Williams at the end, great stuff!

Yep again so close, but in all honesty the French could have gone up a few gears imo. Not happy with the on field leadership thou, occasions when we opted for scrums when we were having a such a tough time in the front row and also rushing penalty kicks. Well done France.

We didnt turn up for the 1st half and played really well the 2nd half, good game though unlike the England v Ireland match. France for the Grand Slam I think.
Come on you Warriors!!!
