He has been in fantastic form this season would be good for him to have a 'swan song' & be part of the Welsh squad at the European Cup but if the French are at full strength could Wales beat them?

Quite possibly. Between 2008 and 2009 England played both countries twice each and as we know won all 4 games. The aggregate score against wales was 122-12 (a difference of 110 points) and against France 122-20 (a difference of 102 points). It's not necessarily a benchmark for this year, but that would suggest France might be favoured by 4 points (i.e. half the difference between 110 and 102) against Wales so it could well be close. A Wales team able to compete with France can only be good for International RL.

Why didn't he fancy playing for Wales last year? Was it simply because the matches weren't high profile enough for him?
