  1. Thats a pretty strong line up. Good to see North and Adam jones back. Although I feel a little sorry for Stoddart. He played well in the first couple of games and still gets skipped over for a place in the starting line up.

    This team is very capable of winning. Although it kind of depends whether France are fired up after the Italy game or disheartened.

  2. Yes, Wales are looking almost at full-strength again, and even without Williams, the Byrne, North and Halfpenny back three has an exciting feel to it.

    I think I fancy this side to beat France in Paris…

  3. This is a strong line-up. Not too worried about about Shane Williams not being there – he’s kicked possession away far to much this championship. Strongly feel that Wales can’t kick the ball away into nothingness as they did with Ireland against France. I think Wales are stronger than France in most areas at the minute and they need to control the game. They can’t let France dictate the pace. I think that Wales can win as well.

  4. France’s schizophrenia has gone to new levels and as such take the fun out of watching them play!

    I wouldn’t normally say this but i hope wales pump them.
