Why Jones (S) didn't take the drop on when they were in the French 22 was dire game management and, dare one say it, a little windy of him. Didn't want the responsibility it seems.
Kicking always seems to win the games. Some of the French kicks were quite tricky too.
Thoughts on the game - heroic and couragous stuff from Wales. FRance shut down Roberts though except for one run. And it was like Wales expected him to be shut down and went to a number of other players throughout the game.
Coming into the game I was backing the French - however with that heart warming performance it was tough not to want Wales to succeed from a neutral's perspective.
Had the man not been sent off - surely wales would have won. They were winning before it happened in terms of run of the game.
