We can discount Scotlandland fielding the B team to allow the French a real go given the losers to such shenanigans would be Wales and not the ald foes.

Why did France take the 3? They need tries.  4 of them.

France have been sailing close to the wind a few times in defence.
Bach without a doubt.

It's interesting that the pundits are question France's decision to kick a couple of penalties. Points are points. Years ago, if ever a team chose to run when there was a chance to kick a penalty, that was the questionable decision.

In a normal game I would agree. Take the points.  However France must take the bonus point to draw level with Wales.

Oh yes.  France have to beat Scotland and score four tries to make them equal on points with Wales and then it all goes down to mathemagical nerdery which ICBA to look up.

Frankly, my bear, I don't think you'll need to be A:  France should be up to the task.  Is there a date for this, yet?

I was otherwise engaged tonight, how did the game go?

It was a bit like old times really, in the 1970s 5-nations sense: Wales & France were top, and England got the wooden spoon...  :P

Its a pity Scotland did not get one more try. They needed a bonus point and France not to get one.  They would then be 2nd in the championship.

Scotland forfeited 9 guaranteed points by not kicking penalties when they could have done. France forfeited the game by not taking the ball to touch at 82 minutes. Decisions you later live to regret...

But what a game!

I couldn't believe what I was seeing, and it was barely mentioned (if at all) in the live TV commentary.  I had to wait and listen to the post-match analysis to get confirmation of what had actually happened.

Yes, that was extraordinary. What did they stand to gain by playing on? Denying Scotland a losing bonus piint?

What did Wales do that so displeased M. Larrington?
