    Possibly an overstatement Heef but without him they wouldn't have won.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I disagree. I think the difference between the teams was more than one player.

    Finish the game off with a penalty. How appropriate.

    Ready the rotten fruit. Line the useless ****ers up.

    Wow the post could have kept England alive there.

    Given France's record of following these sorts of unexpected wins up with a poor performance I imagine Wales must be pretty pleased with how tonight's match went down. Have to say that despite France lifting their game, England were so poor. Dumb penalties given away in the first half (admittedly their final penalty count wasn't high at all) which gave France all the momentum and then some average efforts to actually play with some flamboyance - Tuilagi looked the best of the backs but I get the impression he tried to do too much on his own. Big games from the French loosies and Rougerie plus Yachvili for 55 mins (why was he substituted - injury related?). Very surprised England's scrum came under so much pressure too, as it was last week against the Scots - shows that the loss of Sheridan was perhaps underplayed.

    Why Parra didn't just kick it 15 metres to the left and ensure it went dead was beyond me; a slightly more favourable bounce of the ball off the post and the game was still alive.

    I'm not actually sure if the TMO was confident that Cueto's first attempt to ground the ball was on the line; but given the second was fine and there was no knock-on between his attempts to ground the ball, I guess it didn't matter. I would've given the try for either grounding TBH.

    Got what we deserved all tournament: nothing.

    Spectacularly inept first half performance. Handling was dire and, as has been the case all too often of late, Wilkinson's kicking from hand was as bad. The way he fell off Clerc for the first French score was indicative of a chap who looks a bad facsimilie of the player he once was.

    Christ, a Wales v France semi; I'll have to back the Leekists. Feel dirty typing it.

    So the moral of the story is that you can't win a game that's only a match for one half.

    But how do you fix that?
