Completely bizarre. Five players out of position in the starting line up. No 8's/6's/15's in the squad. It's like a whole squad of second rows and centres.

French giving a good account of themselves so far, but there's a long way to go.

Mute button required. Unless you’re Welsh of course!

France will lose. They’re not quite there yet.

That confirms for me that France are the real deal.

Great match for the neutral but overall the right result, (even though I lost money on it).

Grand slam for France? At home against Ireland, I wouldn't bet against it. And, yes, the future looks good for them. One the other hand, it is France we're talking about!

I want to see what happened at the end again. It looked like some one had enough of biggar's bull shit and smacked him but they cut away. Any one see it?

I think their new coaching ethos is to try and wean out the mental weaknesses that have plagued them for years. That self destruct button they have if the pre match meal wasnt upto scratch or whatever. They've always had talent, and flair. But this new found discipline and defensive nous has stepped them up several notches.

Cannot be giving away silly tries like that and expect to get anything. Game over
