Just got back from France. Enjoyed the weekend. Good to see a few Welsh fans out there. Good game, decent stadium with a good view, beer good and shed loads of chips per portion. Can't complain. Wrexham's got a lot to live up to next weekend.

You would if Rervers hadnt been promoted shortly before the cutoff


I wouldn't.

I watched the game with my Grandad and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought the standard was high, Wales' defence was outstanding and France looked great in attack. I'm looking forward to Saturday's Wales/England game and then England versus France a week later at MS3 CP.

Just on the subject of those who oppose the international game on the basis that it 'isn't very good'. If people actively support it it will grow and become more worthwhile. Just a thought....

The thing is - in terms of International sport it is actually very good (IMHO obviously).

International football and Northern Hemisphere Rugby Union can be very disappointing, yet the match the other day had some nice tries, nice bits of skill, and a bit of biff. This was from two teams who are not the best.

Absolutely. I thoroughly enjoyed the game. Can't wait for the next one!

I think it important to be positive about Wales they have decent support, and potential unlike scots or Irish who cannot seem to get anyone to there games.

Tbh neither Ireland or Scotland have played a major international (i.e. England, NZ or Australia) on home soil.

Adiitiomally they dont usually play with their strongest "available" squads until a world cup.

I'm convinced that Ireland would get easily over 10k for a home test against Ireland with their strongest squad picked

Like to see that game.

I'd have a wedge on Ireland myself.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Let's be fair; Scotland and Ireland are far newer to the game than Wales.

Memo to anyone going on Saturday - remember your thermals, particularly if you're in the Mold Road Stand which doesn't get any sun on it!

Just bought my tickets for the game in Wrexham. Using the seat choice thingy it looked as if we will have the whole of the Mold road Stand to ourselves.

Have I booked the "wrong" stand or is no one else going?

Picked up on the French Federation website that they sold more tickets at Lens Saturday than they did in Perpignan for the Scotland game last year. Impressive.

There are a few of us going in the Mold Road Stand, when I booked the tickets last week I think there were about 50 seats I couldn't choose from!

It's like the bad old days - haven't heard or read a single word about tomorrow's match in the mainstream media. :(

On the upside, the BBC will not only be showing the match live, but have scheduled a 1-hour highlights package on Sunday.
