  1. Not Hibbard on the bench but Ken Owens otherwise the unluckiest man to miss out is Tuperic who did enough for man of the match last week but Warburton if fit was always going to come back and Ryan Jones has made a positive impact in every game .

    Hard to argue with that team Ian Evans deserves to be there and Charteris is a bit short of game time to start. Bradley Davies to come back so some depth at last in that position .

    So the team is right all down to the performance now.

  2. Wales should win this.

    That said the French are wounded, two bad home results for them, they’re going to be dangerous…

    I’m not one to say the first 20 minutes are key against the French, but if Wales play to their ability and keep their heads then victory and the Grand Slam is theirs.

    1. France have set their stall set out for this game, worries me a little as they will kick, kick and kick again, if Wales don’t secure their ball then you can see France using their big forwards to roll over the Welsh line, saying that if Wales kick intelligently and do not give away too many penalties Wales should win – any other Team then we know what we are going against – but France are so unpredictable – that is what i worry about.

  3. Vous allez perdre beaucoup que la pression de gagner le Grand Chelem un peu beaucoup.

    La France bien finir, alles Bleus

  4. Byddwn yn tagu fel yr ydym wedi bod yn mynd yn waeth pob twrnamaint, bydd Ffrainc sleifio buddugoliaeth ac rydym yn ffodus iawn yn erbyn Lloegr
