    Doesn't matter. The IRB sees dropping a player as equal to driving him into the ground. They have zero tolerance to spear tackles and fair enough - that was incredibly reckless from the Welsh captain. Wales still hanging in there at the moment.

    Out of interest, does the Ref have the ability to confer with the TMO on such decisions (or does the TMO have the ability to let the Refs know of an incident they may have missed?)

    France are screwing this up by trying to sit on a six point lead

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

    Great little show and go from the big fella.

    & Jones (S) misses the conversion...

    The kicking is killing the Taffs.

    That's a huge call. Charteris hanging on to the ball twice there.

    Well, you'd have to say that it was the Welsh kicking that cost them in the end. 11 points went begging and any one of the four they missed would've won it.

    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.
