Interesting selection but it feels as if we have gone full circle regarding development ....Big defensive game needed from Wales with a side that's named

It doesn't matter France last try against the English was a thing of beauty...they love to play running rugby should be applauded for playing real rugby.

When was the last time we produced a flowing backline try.

We are not ....we can't play, zombies where you know what each player will do...exception is LRZ who is excellent...the rest bloody hell.

And interestingly if Ange Capuzzo had been playing they would have scored the searing breaks they had generated.

We are far worse than most will admit,

They are either good enough or they are not they, will learn nothing sitting in stands. 
Damage limitation cowardice I call it.

Putting 2 rookie centres in against probably the best centre pairing in the 6 nations is silly.

It’s a pretty uninspiring selection, although we knew it was coming when he refused to admit his original squad was wrong and call up fresh players during the tournament. 

Maybe France will think it’s such an easy game they won’t train or turn up ready. That’s my only hope for this weekend. Potentially we can limit them like last years 13-9 score, but there’s no chance we win this without an early red card for DuPont

So they good enough against England and Italy but but not against France. One of them good enough to play against the best side in world. if they not good enough or not ready they shouldn’t be there, obvious really.
They need as much experience as possible in World Cup year.
I personally don’t think they are the best centres in Wales far from it but if they are in squad pick them.
George is so far off the pace he’s a shadow of former self.
If Gatland want so stubborn he would be playing people from outside squad who are in better form.

More chopping and changing, fails again to select a fly half with talent flair and form- Patchell...Its damage limitation , no development at all...Biggar will kick to orders and we will waste possession and kick to the skies and learn absolutely nothing as usual
Gats doesnt know what hes doing at 4,5, 6 and 7 and the centres....Dropping Jenkins at lock is depressing. No idea where Christ t has disappeared to, jack morgan must be wondering whats going on too hes been 8,6,7 dropped twice? The centres ? No one seems to have nailed the shirts down...I suspect scarlets have the best centres though, as usual.Wink

Dont agree that this is damage limitations, as if you look at the stats, our midfield has been appalling in defence, and as good as Morgan in going forward, he also is an open door when it comes to defence.

Were not quite as bad as this seasons results and performances have shown imo But the main problem has been off the field with the WRU mismanagement and the coaching selections too. IF the wru hadnt gone into meltdown and if it hadnt affected the players...That in turn would have helped a little bit. But weve also leaped from 1 coach back to the former coach and both were guilty of the most bizarre selection policies and gats has retreated back into siege mentality coaching too. Even if wed done all these things better, we'd probably be losing to the french but wed be a damn side more competitive.

Won't happen gentlemen. 

Late last night I watched Slammed 70s. The one thing that stuck in my mind 3 Grand Slams 3 Triple crowns on the trot...unheard of, unknown territory.  But crucially listening to the words of players and yes the press....there was one common theme.

The team was full of genuine World class players, not pretend loved up stuff that's written about today's players desperately grabbing at anything that resembles flair and skill.

And that's the point with this French team. They have at least 3 world class players, possibly 5 and players who are running to attain that status in the coming year or even years.

This French team is special, really special with players not playing out of positions, like us and are specialists in their craft, they play rugby as its meant to be played and its brilliant to watch.

And here's my point, I don't particularly like the French ...dont rate the Country or the people, I prefer Italy and the Italians and have had fantastic times in Italy...but not in France, perhaps its me..... but its my view, so I don't have any affinity towards the French at all. So my points are based on my love for running rugby, quick and skillful rugby.

I love the way they play rugby and the style they want to win by ....and this French outfit for me will win the World Cup. Sport is cyclic and its our time accept rebuilding and finding future World class players, so until then enjoy a team that could emulate what we achieved with the best Welsh 15 ever.

Oh we are dross of course and we may be in the wilderness longer than Moses, but I still think if wed applied more common sense and more imagination in our coaching and strategies wed at least be a tad bit better. As it stands , considering the money invested in this squad an these coaches , we're embarrassing really, incapable of playing any rugby and too scared to even try

It is a majestic french team and we have the ignoble distinction of handing them the missing piece of their jigsaw on a platter, namely the worlds best defence coach. Edwards joining france was the alignment of the french rugby planets. He supplied everything that was missing, discipline, structure, desire, mental strength etc Now theyre the full package and they have the WRU to thank for their world class incompetenceLOL

As for france v italy, it makes me laugh people always compare the 2 lol I would in general agree Italy is better though, Italy is an astonishing country with a bit of everything, beauty, sunshine culture and arts un-paralleled,  it really has everything apart from frogs and snails lol

Both France & Ireland are top quality teams. For me Ireland's main strength is their consistency of performance. France though have the higher ceiling. At times they are a delight on the eye playing rugby with such simplicity which oozes class and is worthy of Bennett in his prime. There is no greater compliment available to me. 

As for France, the land and people I do not share your view there Lofty. I have travelled quite extensively from North to South and have loved every minute. The history, traditions, food & wines of every region are a sheer joy.

France will probably try too hard to be the France that shamed England and not hit the same heights. Still win quite comfortably though.

Not a Scooby Doo why you would change the centres and not get Christ etc play...

Lofty, you know what I’ll say about France and its people. Like many places, the more you get to know it and its people, the better it is.

Had some great times in Italy, too, although speak only a few words, so limited.

If we can keep it under 50 that would be something. Still struggling to see how we’ve improved under the new and expensively installed coaching regime.

If my expectations are exceeded and we put in a performance that’s unrecognisable from recent fare, that’d be wonderful.

I don't know what others think - no time to read thread, sorry - but I just hope we can do quite a bit better than England. hardly any chance of a win; keep them to 30 points - not bad; 20 or less - pretty good. 40+ - not great.

But you never know.

Good first 10 we starved France of the ball....its the only way to take them on....when they have the ball they score.....they are reminding me of NZ ruthlessness and efficiency and the backs are ripping our backline up again.....North defence is MIA.

A lot of soft tries conceded. No idea who should be the starters. Rio Dyer, Wainwright and North played well. Pack wasn’t good enough ultimately, but best performance of the tournament.

Meh - Francis, Wyn, Tipuric, Falatau, LRZ, Roberts

Past it - Ken, AWJ, Halfpenny

Sorry, but to conceed 40pts against a team who never got out of 2nd gear is diabolical. The pack, apart from wainwright and jenkins were poor. Half backs, shocking. Centres couldnt tackle, again. Adams is no longer an international wing. Dyer did his best but too small to play Gatlands wY. Zammit is no FB. Subs were no improvement on starters. We're lucky Italy cant finish moves or we would be, where we deserve, at the bottom of the pile. #gatlandout

Done well to get a bonus point in Paris. We're a long way off the top teams though. Hope Gatland gives the youngsters a good run in the Summer before the RWC. If I were Tom Rodgers or Joe Roberts I'd be looking to play myself into consideration. Johnny Williams should definitely go. Didn't think much of Dyer today despite his try. Francis doesn't offer much but then Wyn didn't have a great game either. Beard is a passenger. Pains me to say it but I thought Dillon Lewis did reasonably well when he came on. Adams looks off form to me. Thought Wainright showed some appetite for contact that's missing from a lot of our forwards. Prefer Reffel to Tipuric.

Good second half performance.  I didn’t see us scoring more than 1 try before the game started, but to get 4 was very pleasing.
George North was exposed for 2 of the French tries, his defence has always been suspect, on the wing you can use the touchline as a defender, but there is no hiding in the centre, as you can be exposed both inside and outside.
Williams did well when he came on as did Jenkins, but we are very weak in the front row - this is explained in the fact that Dillon Lewis earned his 50th cap, he probably wouldn’t have earned 10 caps if he was representing the other home nations.
Biggar was solid at 10, but didn’t offer anything offensively, in what is likely to be his last nations start, Webb was solid too, again in what is likely to be his last 6 nations match, and likewise it was nice for halfpenny to score with the last kick of the game.
After the World Cup we need to rebuild completely, basing the team around the likes of DewinLake, Dafydd Jenkins, Chris T, Reffell, LRZ and our very own Jonny Williams.
The World Cup is only 6 months away so we won’t see manned changes in the squad and the game plan.
