Is it just me or did the first half have some real wonky passing? Loads of weird one arm passes with the ball kind of going anywhere and guys passing off the deck.

I don't really follow rugby, but when that guy got knocked out in the first half even I assumed it as george north. How has his brain not been tuend into oatmeal already.

France 100% deserve this though, Wales have been unable to exploit the man advantage for 15 minutes now.

Same could be said about the world cup match though no?

So I get the France 2 coverage for the game and I don't ever remember other coverage being so homerish. "Allez les bleus!" was getting yelled at the end of the first half, and oui oui oui at the end of the match.

Good match though.

Apparently he's training with his club team though. Not sure if that's the article you've linked, the bbc messes up on my phone.

Why would you kick the ball away with 10 seconds to go?

Those offloads look desperate but they work. Just lobbing the ball up hoping a blue jersey catches it lol

They look it, but I don't think they are. They're fully expecting the guy to have run that line and be there.

Yeah, it's a fun pass to watch.

Galthier left the bubble, and half the team went out to have waffles in Rome. Surely the French just have to be kicked out of the Six Nations this year for putting everyone else at risk?

Wasn't it that french rugby union that nearly didn't participate in the first place?

It's a real shame because that France v Wales+referee match in round 5 could've been the title decider
