Carre should have been there at the least. Wyn Jones shouldn’t be; Nicky Smith anyone? This team will be lucky to get within 50.

Better to be Billy Big B0llocks like Adams, rather than trying (and failing) to be a pretty boy like Stuart Hogg.

It's a nailed on yellow if the try isn't scored. Don't think the outcome should impact.

Frances ball placement is excellent when they're not offloading out of the tackle.

France should have had a yellow earlier too when Wales scored ... I don't see why some refs ignore yellows just because a try is scored.

Yes. Maybe harsh yellow from that position. Was it North? The one before half time.

Nice move. But that maul is my bug bear. Marchand disengages what 3 times at the back. That's a pen to Wales for obstruction yet is ignored by practically every ref.

It took 3 dramatic losses for Gats to realise that you can only score when you generate quick ball. Clearly a bit of homework done for France too, but we were lacking personnel going into this tournament anyway, struggling along was inevitable.

Well, not within 10 points like I imagined. But not the thumping it could have been either. The first and last 10 mins were decent from Wales! Very Happy

Not a great deal to take away. Lots we know already. Just hoping Gatland has a trick up his sleeves for the WC. Not holding my breath though.

I think France can get figured out quite easily by the better teams at the World Cup. With Ireland and NZ it’s difficult to figure out as they don’t seem to have weaknesses. SA will be up there too, everyone knows how they’ll play but it’s difficult to stop them rolling over you.

Let me ask the obvious question because Scotland fans had to grapple with this 5 years ago - surely it is better for the senior Welsh players to leave for non-Wales clubs and free up space for the youngsters to get some game time?

It will be much less attractive for the fans to watch, at least initially, but it must be the only way for the standard of the national team squad to improve on the limited budget which the WRU (and other unions) has?

George, I think you’d be right if a) we only had 2 sides and b) if the senior players actually played a lot for their clubs! How many senior players are we talking about in reality? Maybe 10? Spread over 4 clubs? And they often only play around 10 games a season so plenty of chance to blood youngsters. So not massively blocking talent coming through.

I know this has been said before, and I know this is going to sound offensive (sorry!), but I don’t think the Scotland is a great example of success with that model. If it was then yes I’d be more inclined to want to follow it. Yes a couple of half decent years on the bounce now for the Scotland national team. But nothing really to show for it. The Scottish clubs are having a slightly better time of it than the Welsh regions. But not massively so. We’re not talking Euro champs or consistent URC/Pro league winners. Less than the Welsh even (is that right?), historically?

I’m happy to wait and see what the restructure brings. Out of necessity we’ll probably see some leaving as the funding is reducing but I still think the best thing for national success is having the best players at home. All the top nations do that.

There are a couple senior players who could do with being moved on tbh. Anscombe, Halfpenny and Foxy to name 3.
