It's the final round of the 6-nation championships and are under 20s are

:00:14.:00:19.

on a roll. Last weekend they unleashed their attacking flair on

:00:20.:00:24.

Ireland, scoring five tries. A beautiful pass. Putting Corrie

:00:25.:00:34.

Tarrant over for Wales. Williams with an absolutely glorious break.

:00:35.:00:39.

Down the middle comes Williams, heads for the post. Wales come with

:00:40.:00:50.

their third victory. That was last week, can they back it

:00:51.:00:55.

up in less familiar surroundings of France? 30 miles north of the rugby

:00:56.:01:01.

stronghold, Toulouse. A lot will depend on this man, Keiran Williams,

:01:02.:01:04.

man of the match but two rounds running. Scorer of five tries

:01:05.:01:09.

already in this campaign. Tonight he has been given the captain's

:01:10.:01:15.

armband. As we know, as with the maintenant, England have already

:01:16.:01:18.

been crowned champions with a week to spare. They are on the verge of

:01:19.:01:23.

beating Ireland in full-time survey have added a Grand Slam to their

:01:24.:01:27.

championship and what that means is, if Wales wins tonight, they will

:01:28.:01:34.

guarantee themselves second place. Good evening and welcome to Scrum V,

:01:35.:01:42.

live. We must remember, wheels were Grand Slam defending champions

:01:43.:01:45.

coming into this but at the start of the tournament, only seven of their

:01:46.:01:51.

players had under 20s experience. Given that, it's not a bad return if

:01:52.:01:55.

they end up coming second? I think it would be superb. You get a team

:01:56.:01:59.

that has played really well and you decimate them and you have to start

:02:00.:02:04.

from scratch but you also have two get the atmosphere and the

:02:05.:02:06.

continuity of how they play together, it's a big job to do. He's

:02:07.:02:11.

done a superb job and these guys gelled very quickly. Very tough game

:02:12.:02:15.

against a really good England side and they give a good account of

:02:16.:02:18.

themselves right up to the point where there were a few points with

:02:19.:02:21.

they let it slide but they bounced back from that and they have been

:02:22.:02:25.

putting some big performances in and it's great watching them develop and

:02:26.:02:29.

watching these boys being thrown in at the deep end at the start but now

:02:30.:02:38.

coming good. That's the point, we talk about development for this

:02:39.:02:40.

tournament, that's the most important thing and the players

:02:41.:02:43.

might not agree with that but it's about getting players ready for the

:02:44.:02:46.

next step and by the end of tonight 's game, 31 players will have played

:02:47.:02:51.

a part in instrument. That's got to bode well for the future as Mike

:02:52.:02:55.

it's great and with a greater return as well. He's kept a core group of

:02:56.:03:00.

players. People like Keiran Williams. It's nice to get a mix.

:03:01.:03:04.

The venture don't always get enough time but it's good experience the

:03:05.:03:08.

night going to places like France. We've been there with the age-group

:03:09.:03:12.

teams and European teams. It's a difficult place to go at any level

:03:13.:03:16.

and France don't lose many games at home so tough on the night. Ten in a

:03:17.:03:21.

row they've won at home, France. Wales only lost one so far in

:03:22.:03:25.

instrument. But one against England so just the one defeat so far. The

:03:26.:03:29.

rest have been wins, here's a reminder of their campaign so far.

:03:30.:03:43.

Good case there, he is a finisher, he can get it. Keiran Williams will

:03:44.:03:58.

put this to bed under the sticks. He reaches and he makes it! First-time

:03:59.:04:06.

Wales have lost here. In the end, England were too strong for them.

:04:07.:04:15.

That's as good a try as you could wish to see from Wales. It's a try

:04:16.:04:21.

for Wales and it is Rhun Williams. A fantastic win to put the under 20

:04:22.:04:28.

campaign back on track. Williams with an absolutely glorious

:04:29.:04:32.

break. Wales getaway with a thrilling

:04:33.:04:40.

victory. One thing that definitely stands out

:04:41.:04:44.

is the all out attack that Wales have shown in this campaign so far.

:04:45.:04:50.

100 points in the last two games alone, 154 in total. 18 tries, it

:04:51.:04:54.

shows a real statement of intent and pulling the strings has been in

:04:55.:04:57.

return. Ben Jones has been really good. Keiran Williams has got a lot

:04:58.:05:04.

of plaudits but he is quite mature and directs play. Wheels are going

:05:05.:05:08.

one way with the flow and what I like is, he recognises that the

:05:09.:05:12.

Ireland forwards are tighter on the rock and like any good outside-half

:05:13.:05:16.

in the middle of the field, he switches play, takes it on himself

:05:17.:05:19.

to go but that ball and put a slight pattern for the hooker to score. He

:05:20.:05:24.

is confident, he is a good leader. Hearing is upfront. Just rocks in

:05:25.:05:31.

the position for the next phase, this time wrestling behind the

:05:32.:05:37.

forwards to take a pass behind and hit that gap. Then taking the ball

:05:38.:05:41.

up to the defender and keeping it alive. They do use their

:05:42.:05:44.

ball-carriers. Here is Keiron Assiratti from the Ireland game. He

:05:45.:05:48.

has come off the line appear, but that Keiran Williams coming from the

:05:49.:05:51.

centre. He carries on this occasion and a similar position. Here is the

:05:52.:05:56.

proper began with Keiran Williams on his outside, this time through good

:05:57.:06:01.

Williams and as they say, the rest is history. There is a nice balance

:06:02.:06:05.

to their attacking play. They have been a joy to watch this campaign

:06:06.:06:09.

and a man who has been orchestrating that attack, Jason strange, the head

:06:10.:06:13.

coach of the under 20s and he is pitch side. Good evening. Here he

:06:14.:06:24.

is, wheels can finish second in the final table if they win tonight. How

:06:25.:06:30.

much of incentive is that? It's not something we have discussed to be

:06:31.:06:34.

honest. Our focus is on our performance and hopefully we can

:06:35.:06:38.

finish the night with a top-level performance and something the

:06:39.:06:42.

players can be proud of. 9pm local time, that is quite late here. Does

:06:43.:06:46.

that make a difference to you? Now, to be honest. It has been a lovely

:06:47.:06:51.

day, 70 degrees. We had kept the boys busy but they are relaxed and

:06:52.:06:55.

looking forward to a great atmosphere. Just words about the

:06:56.:06:59.

atmosphere, that is French rugby, isn't it? Is all part of the players

:07:00.:07:02.

learning and I am sure they will take a lot from this tonight. Have a

:07:03.:07:07.

good one. Just moments before the game kicks

:07:08.:07:11.

off and we have touched on the Keiran Williams already. Top try

:07:12.:07:15.

scorer with five of the top of the charts, the man of the matches in a

:07:16.:07:19.

row and he is already being compared by many to a certain Scott Gibbs. Is

:07:20.:07:24.

this guy a future international star? He could be, I watched for the

:07:25.:07:29.

Ospreys against London Irish. Very, very good. He has the give ability

:07:30.:07:33.

to play up and he has taken this championship by the horns. A good

:07:34.:07:38.

finisher. There was a good one last week against Ireland. He should good

:07:39.:07:43.

turn and an excellent step. He does remind me of Scott Gibbs. Stocky and

:07:44.:07:51.

powerful and quick off the mark. An opportunity here and here is

:07:52.:07:54.

obviously a talisman because they had made him captain the night.

:07:55.:07:58.

Briefly, we had him in the studio not so long ago and he is a

:07:59.:08:04.

relatively small guy but when you got that kind of power come you

:08:05.:08:07.

don't necessarily need to be huge? Now Scott Gibbs was a big player. As

:08:08.:08:16.

you say, the power, he has great gas and the boys will be living up to

:08:17.:08:20.

him. He has the captain 's armband, he is leading by example, scoring

:08:21.:08:23.

and has to tries and looks to be one to watch for the future. Scott Gibbs

:08:24.:08:32.

wasn't that big when he played. If you can continue that form,

:08:33.:08:35.

hopefully he will be blazing a trail in the regional game. A more serious

:08:36.:08:40.

issue, the front row union are incensed by what they have seen in

:08:41.:08:45.

the last seven days. Have Rob Evans doing a miss pass and the next day,

:08:46.:08:49.

your Maserati with the most audacious of dummies from a prop.

:08:50.:08:54.

What the punishment can make expect? He won't be allowed to set up the

:08:55.:08:59.

back of the bus. A fantastic dummy and good turn of pace. Just working

:09:00.:09:04.

a little bit on his passing and he will be complete. Bit of a tongue in

:09:05.:09:10.

his cheek as he does it, a bit of a swagger, he's on fire! What are your

:09:11.:09:17.

thoughts as a coach on that kind of display from a prop? I think it's

:09:18.:09:23.

great. If you're talking a 15 man game, is an Australian or Kiwi was

:09:24.:09:27.

doing that, we would be applauding the skills. It shows the confidence

:09:28.:09:31.

and shows what Jason and his coaches are trying to instil. I love it.

:09:32.:09:36.

That is exactly what we applaud, the New Zealand front five doing it as

:09:37.:09:40.

well, great to see one of our own doing something so skilful. Let's go

:09:41.:09:44.

back to fill now because I understand from under 20s game, this

:09:45.:09:50.

has a mammoth crowd this evening? It's a sell-out, 10,000 here. Then

:09:51.:09:54.

the rustic atmosphere. You can see the flags waving and we've had the

:09:55.:10:00.

brass band playing, the bigger the south of France. This is rugby area

:10:01.:10:10.

in front. It is at the heart of French rugby and you can tell it

:10:11.:10:12.

from the atmosphere tonight. As Jason was saying there, this is how

:10:13.:10:17.

the Welsh boys will be able to cope with this type of that there is much

:10:18.:10:21.

as how they will cope with what the French team can throw at them.

:10:22.:10:26.

Conditions are rapidly perfect. It's got slightly cooler this evening but

:10:27.:10:29.

earlier on today, were sitting out having lunch in Toulouse where our

:10:30.:10:33.

base is, 70 degrees, absolutely perfect. The teams are just coming

:10:34.:10:38.

out in front of me. Let's go to the commentary team.

:10:39.:10:50.

Welcome to everyone on what has been a glorious day in south west France

:10:51.:10:56.

and it is here the Welsh youngsters will try to round off the campaign

:10:57.:11:01.

on a high note with a second place up for grabs. They should be in a

:11:02.:11:05.

buoyant mood after their win last time against Ireland. Their

:11:06.:11:09.

counterparts will also be keen to round up what has been a disjointed

:11:10.:11:14.

campaign by their standards. With only two wins in the campaign so

:11:15.:11:24.

far. The hash will descend on the stadium for the next few moments for

:11:25.:11:29.

the anthems and first, it is the Welsh national anthem.

:11:30.:11:58.

The anthem being sung with gusto here, with a proud record for the

:11:59.:14:00.

under 20 five that are on a ten match unbeaten streak and the coach

:14:01.:14:09.

with four changes from the team. The changes in the back.

:14:10.:14:18.

names. With the Junior World Cup fast approaching, Jason has tinkered

:14:19.:14:39.

with the starting 15. Steff Thomas comes in with James Botham stepping

:14:40.:14:45.

up from the replacements. Keiran Williams, Star man in the Irish

:14:46.:14:50.

victory, leads the side with Ioan Nicholas. The final act then in the

:14:51.:15:02.

under 20 season with Wales hoping for a strong finish and the finish

:15:03.:15:11.

in second place. Mike Adamson is the referee this evening from Scotland.

:15:12.:15:15.

Wales hoping to kick on from where they left off last week. They scored

:15:16.:15:25.

over 40 points. And five tries with free flowing rugby, the order of the

:15:26.:15:33.

day. From the kick-off of them. This final weekend of Six Nations rugby.

:15:34.:15:40.

Plenty at stake for both sides. Add it goes. Across the three quarters

:15:41.:15:47.

line. Wales holding firm in their defensive line. The scrum-half

:15:48.:15:56.

working at from nine, as most French sides do. It's on to the big man.

:15:57.:16:11.

Bringing the big man on. A good positive start from France and it

:16:12.:16:14.

will be tough in these early exchanges for Wales. Baptiste

:16:15.:16:23.

Couilloud. Wales Bill up in French faces. The scrum-half again on this

:16:24.:16:31.

short side but will smack standing firm in their defensive patterns.

:16:32.:16:36.

The Wales defence has been rock-solid is opening. They don't

:16:37.:16:41.

need to rush anything. They are winning the physical battle and that

:16:42.:16:46.

is a perfect exit from Wales. That is just what they need. They needed

:16:47.:16:49.

to add that little bit of pressure and superb defensive work from

:16:50.:16:57.

Wales. The coaching unit will be mightily impressed with that

:16:58.:17:01.

patients. The discipline and they get their just rewards. It was Shane

:17:02.:17:09.

Lewis-Hughes with the tackle. He has relieved a lot of pressure for Elias

:17:10.:17:13.

El Ansari and they have turned bad. Have turned the defence into attack

:17:14.:17:16.

and they set up a perfect attacking opportunity from the flying out. 18

:17:17.:17:20.

tries so far in the campaign. They do want to play rugby, that is the

:17:21.:17:26.

mantra from Jason and that was clearly evident last week. They

:17:27.:17:29.

cannot afford to come here this evening and just rely on their

:17:30.:17:33.

defence, they got to look to play, to show that little bit of

:17:34.:17:36.

extravagance and have that arrogance and confidence about them. They keep

:17:37.:17:48.

it tight. Keiran Williams, stocky but supercharged and so tough to

:17:49.:17:53.

bring the ground. As is this man, Alex Dombrandt. France are very

:17:54.:18:00.

quickly on the Corey Baldwin. There's not much room to work with

:18:01.:18:10.

as Rhys Carre carries forward. Good reply from the Welsh 15. Straight

:18:11.:18:18.

through, Ben Jones. It's still available. And lunging over his Aled

:18:19.:18:27.

Ward, the Trai has been awarded. Ben Jones, the creator. They didn't

:18:28.:18:30.

panic and that is a superb start for the Welsh under 20 side. They

:18:31.:18:35.

couldn't have asked anything better. Superb work from Jones. He spotted a

:18:36.:18:47.

mismatch in front of him. I think this is Aled Ward over the line but

:18:48.:18:52.

superb vision by Ben Jones. He has backed himself, that is what I like

:18:53.:18:56.

about it. He has had the willingness to try and play that ball and great

:18:57.:19:01.

support from Aled Ward. Over the try line within the first couple of

:19:02.:19:05.

minutes. The conversion to come as well me just what they would wanted.

:19:06.:19:12.

Settling the nerves early on, and this is Ben Jones's run once more.

:19:13.:19:16.

Look how wide and flat he is standing. You're always going to

:19:17.:19:20.

change that challenge that with defender and he has done that. He

:19:21.:19:26.

has taken the hole and fortunately for Wales, scored the try. France

:19:27.:19:41.

just make the ten metres. No advantage so they will come back.

:19:42.:19:48.

France would have targeted this game. They have had disappointments

:19:49.:19:53.

in the campaign, going down heavily to England on the opening weekend.

:19:54.:19:59.

From a Welsh perspective, you couldn't have asked for anything

:20:00.:20:03.

better. This is probably one of the first time this bunch would have

:20:04.:20:07.

played in front of a full house in France, quite an intimidating

:20:08.:20:11.

atmosphere and you can kill the crowd straightaway by scoring a try

:20:12.:20:14.

and that is what Wales have done and they have the ball back now which

:20:15.:20:18.

will allow them to take control of" as you can hear in the distance, a

:20:19.:20:26.

lot of noise reverberating around the stadium. The first one has gone

:20:27.:20:35.

to ground, they will have two be formed. The boys mentioned on the

:20:36.:20:40.

top of the programme, 31 players would have had experience, which is

:20:41.:20:45.

important. This under 20s, different from senior level of course, because

:20:46.:20:48.

they are working for that Junior World Cup in Georgia. It is a

:20:49.:20:52.

cracking experience for the boys as well in general. These boys are only

:20:53.:20:56.

going to get better as players with experience of playing in the south

:20:57.:21:00.

of France. They are playing at the highest level. They are getting the

:21:01.:21:03.

chance to show what they can do in this higher stage and some of these

:21:04.:21:07.

boys haven't had the regional opportunities and that is what the

:21:08.:21:10.

game is, to develop that competition rather than going all out for the

:21:11.:21:14.

win. Fantastic start for Wales and here's hoping for more. Pressure

:21:15.:21:18.

coming through from the French eight Bill. They get away with it.

:21:19.:21:27.

Unfortunately, it has gone out. You could see the Tim Erlandsson is the

:21:28.:21:34.

wide right winger. Plenty of space over the top. I wonder if that is a

:21:35.:21:42.

ploy. You can see him on the wide right there and there's plenty of

:21:43.:21:45.

space there. The French are asking a lot of work to get across there. But

:21:46.:21:56.

kick, it was accurate, but plays all day long. As it is, France will have

:21:57.:22:04.

a second chance. They try to rumble on. Good from Wales. You can just

:22:05.:22:13.

see the French forwards getting back up off the floor. Here, France with

:22:14.:22:19.

the cross kick but it is far too long. Exactly the same mistake, but

:22:20.:22:28.

there will be an advantage called by Mike Adamson of Scotland. What Wales

:22:29.:22:34.

do need to do is give any cheap penalties away. Their discipline

:22:35.:22:50.

needs to be top-notch. We almost bumped into Alexandre Roumat's

:22:51.:22:53.

father who played in the 90s. A chance for France to cut the

:22:54.:23:09.

deficit. After Aled Ward's early try for the visitors. The referee has

:23:10.:23:18.

called for the penalty for the whole of the back being offside. They need

:23:19.:23:32.

to step that extra half major back. Just a half meter and they be in a

:23:33.:23:45.

position. It's gone. A shade to the right of that bright and it is

:23:46.:23:51.

relief for Wales. He knows he should have done better with that one. The

:23:52.:23:57.

discipline will be key in this first 40 minutes for the visitors. They

:23:58.:24:03.

just have to be sensible with it. They have the right to storm the 30

:24:04.:24:06.

minutes and then that is where they're open and expand the game

:24:07.:24:11.

will hopefully come into force. The Tim Erlandsson drives on. Baptiste

:24:12.:24:25.

Couilloud out to the side. Williams spotted it and was there. That man,

:24:26.:24:33.

he has some gas and he has scored three tries in his last two

:24:34.:24:37.

appearances for France. He is definitely one of their most

:24:38.:24:43.

threatening players. He looks to get his hands on the ball at full lot.

:24:44.:24:57.

As the front it come in, Wales trying to stop them at source, but

:24:58.:25:11.

it's still going. That's good from Wales. They've done well but here

:25:12.:25:19.

they come again, keeping it tight. They have a second chance. Haotong

:25:20.:25:24.

Li, who is orchestrating things for the home side. Ciaran Williams

:25:25.:25:35.

leading by example. He has been slowed up prudently and Wales have

:25:36.:25:38.

won it back. Great stuff on the floor. Good work there in defence

:25:39.:25:42.

but they will have it all to do again. Maybe I should have gone out

:25:43.:25:46.

back but that is a good defensive line for Elias El Ansari. It has

:25:47.:25:55.

gone free and Wales turn it over again. Have they got a chance? Ryan

:25:56.:26:01.

Conbeer showing his strength. Still going. The line was almost begging

:26:02.:26:07.

for Keiran Williams. Good counter pressure from the Welsh 15. Twice in

:26:08.:26:15.

that last play. Keiran Williams, initiating the turnover from under

:26:16.:26:19.

his own post. Again, 40 metres up the field, he has managed to get his

:26:20.:26:23.

hands on it. And if the wicket to the left and they just get it.

:26:24.:26:29.

Keiran Williams, great support. Good strength to try and stay in field.

:26:30.:26:34.

The first instinct is to see what's on. You just shift the point of

:26:35.:26:41.

contact. As soon as there is any turnover, the defence is going to be

:26:42.:26:46.

within that five or ten metres. A terrible through by Alexandre

:26:47.:26:49.

Roumat. Somehow, they got it back. We couldn't have asked for a better.

:26:50.:27:07.

Only the one win away from home since the under 20s brought in back

:27:08.:27:18.

in 2013. Up goes James Botham at the tail. Again, they looked dangerous.

:27:19.:27:25.

Their options out wide. Bringing Ryan Conbeer in again. Morgan

:27:26.:27:31.

Williams in his second here. He will have another year after that. Corey

:27:32.:27:34.

Baldwin gives chase. As a France settle things, they will

:27:35.:27:54.

keep it tight. Eight charges down the middle, Wales have found it

:27:55.:27:57.

across the field. They have to get a little bit of pressure on the

:27:58.:28:02.

kickers, on the ninth and ten, and force them into a broad kick. They

:28:03.:28:05.

won't want to give any silly penalties away here. Just keep them

:28:06.:28:12.

pegged back on their 22. Baptiste Couilloud, you can see him trying to

:28:13.:28:19.

get his blockers in place. Williams, a chance to run here and he can

:28:20.:28:27.

shift, Rhun Williams. They have got to ground, just about. It is there

:28:28.:28:33.

for Morgan Williams. Again, Ben Jones going to work. That could have

:28:34.:28:39.

gone anywhere. As it is, it is back on the side. Wales will have a

:28:40.:28:46.

chance here. Plenty of options for Wales, they will be happy how this

:28:47.:28:50.

first 30 minutes or so have gone. Technically, the kicking structure

:28:51.:28:54.

is going well. They are looking to put the ball behind this French

:28:55.:28:57.

defence of life and they have the pressure on. It has given Wales the

:28:58.:29:05.

advantage. Good work from Ben Jones and good tactics all around. A lot

:29:06.:29:16.

of these will be going on to play in Georgia in the June. But finishing

:29:17.:29:25.

second, that is a psychological boost. Inland, of course, winning

:29:26.:29:30.

the Grand Slam after beating Ireland by 14-10. No mean feat finishing

:29:31.:29:38.

second and England of course have impressed at senior level but they

:29:39.:29:42.

have strength coming through in the under 20s as well. Jason touched on

:29:43.:29:46.

it before the game, but they haven't looked at coming second but it is

:29:47.:29:50.

something that they most definitely, England have been a class apart with

:29:51.:29:54.

regards to the 20s this season. They have their key players but Wales

:29:55.:29:59.

have got to win this game here this evening to go on and the players

:30:00.:30:04.

need to push their own individual case leading into the World Cup and

:30:05.:30:08.

getting into the squad and again, a lot of these players are in the

:30:09.:30:11.

first of a two year cycle and they will back again next year so it is a

:30:12.:30:14.

good, interesting dynamic. Only seven remain at this year from

:30:15.:30:25.

the grand slam winning team squad of last season. You rebuild every

:30:26.:30:34.

couple of years and it is quite a high turnover this year so it means

:30:35.:30:38.

they would have had the extra experience this season, and that is

:30:39.:30:43.

only going to push on and help them out next year. France did put a bit

:30:44.:30:49.

of pressure on the last scrum. They have a man mountain on the loose

:30:50.:30:54.

their inner Rhys Carre, he is only 19 years old. There are a couple of

:30:55.:31:03.

big guys, especially props, in this Welsh squad. Thomas is making his

:31:04.:31:07.

first start of the tournament so he is under a bit of pressure.

:31:08.:31:16.

Again a bit of pressure on the Welsh tight five. It has been taken

:31:17.:31:24.

against the head and that power is all too evident. They won that

:31:25.:31:28.

penalty so there is a bit of work to be done in that Fassett. Steff

:31:29.:31:33.

Thomas has for Ciaran Assiratti this week. As a Ratti started the

:31:34.:31:38.

previous four games. There has been a bit of pressure the first couple

:31:39.:31:44.

of scrums for Wales. They will need to address that. There are some

:31:45.:31:51.

Giants in the French eight, as in the senior side. We walked past them

:31:52.:31:57.

earlier and there were some man mountain is walking about, enormous.

:31:58.:32:03.

Plenty of food for thought for the Welsh eight. An encouraging start to

:32:04.:32:17.

the game as a whole. A good ball for France off the top. Trying to get

:32:18.:32:24.

the big men over the gain line. It is Couilloud. That is Roumat,

:32:25.:32:32.

Couilloud is switching direction. They had men on the far side. It is

:32:33.:32:37.

that man, Fartass once more, going through a created havoc in the Welsh

:32:38.:32:43.

ranks. A chance for France behind the Welsh gain line now. Floated out

:32:44.:32:50.

to Cros. We lost his footing momentarily. The Glen Day bay with a

:32:51.:32:56.

bit defensive work for Wales to do now to keep at bay. Great work. They

:32:57.:33:08.

appeared to go with a Welsh line-out but good defence from Wales. Fartass

:33:09.:33:13.

is one of the keyboard players and he looks to get his hands on the

:33:14.:33:17.

ball almost every time and then he beats the first offender with his

:33:18.:33:21.

footwork and strength, he is very deceptively strong. Posing problems

:33:22.:33:27.

for the Welsh 15, as is his name is posing problems for many a

:33:28.:33:33.

commentator, I am sure. Ngandebe brilliantly shattered into touch by

:33:34.:33:40.

water, and Botham was in there as well. It was great work as well.

:33:41.:33:49.

After Fartass got through Wales regathered regrouped put some

:33:50.:33:51.

pressure on the French breakdown. You could see a scrappy ball that

:33:52.:33:56.

was where line speed has come on and Wales managed to fill the field and

:33:57.:33:59.

a defensive set so well done to Wales. The French second row.

:34:00.:34:06.

Capelli is just getting a bit of treatment. Reuben Morgan-Williams

:34:07.:34:13.

has been in the water as well. He created such an impression last

:34:14.:34:17.

year. He has played as much this season. Dane Blacker has played in

:34:18.:34:23.

the last few. They have strength and depth that night Owen Leonard has

:34:24.:34:29.

also been in the squad. We touched on there that they had Dane Blacker

:34:30.:34:32.

and they have serious strength in depth which is good for Wales.

:34:33.:34:37.

Helin scored Barack Obama Corrie Tarrant scored last time against

:34:38.:34:48.

Wales. Morgan Williams is trying to relieve some pressure for his team.

:34:49.:34:52.

You micromini to be careful not to go through too many phrases just ten

:34:53.:34:57.

metres from the line. Getting his blockers in front. Ngandebe, and he

:34:58.:35:07.

can shift as well. It is floated out to Cros, one of the changes in the

:35:08.:35:11.

French ranks. He has done well over the gain line.

:35:12.:35:20.

France are just trying to get back into this one after that superb

:35:21.:35:27.

burst out of the blocks from the Welsh 15, and a chance to counter.

:35:28.:35:34.

It might be on here. The space is just a wide on the far touchline.

:35:35.:35:42.

Just slowed up a bit from the Welsh perspective. They have to get that

:35:43.:35:52.

defensive line in place. There are quite narrow now, Wales, they have

:35:53.:35:58.

to push out. Ngandebe goes down well but they managed to get the

:35:59.:36:02.

off-loading to Cros. It is too long for France. He goes again. Just come

:36:03.:36:09.

back in after injury, Ngandebe. Options on both sides here for

:36:10.:36:28.

France. N'Tamack just shoving his dancing feet. There is not much

:36:29.:36:33.

space to work with. Wales are not committing too many to the

:36:34.:36:36.

breakdown, as you can see, they are standing off and backing themselves

:36:37.:36:40.

regards to the line speed and the physicality of the first hit.

:36:41.:36:47.

N'Tamack spreads it wide. Ngandebe has a bit of space to work with Andy

:36:48.:36:52.

tries to get the flow going. It has gone forward. There will be an

:36:53.:36:55.

advantage. France just getting back into this one. Wales now need to

:36:56.:37:03.

keep their concentration and discipline. They will be mightily

:37:04.:37:13.

relieved to see that penalty given by Michael Adamson. France are just

:37:14.:37:18.

clawing their way back in terms of territory and possession. Yes, it

:37:19.:37:23.

Boniface said he just couldn't help himself, his hands when the cookie

:37:24.:37:28.

jar but it has given Wales this easy opportunity to clear their lines

:37:29.:37:31.

that is just what any coach would have wanted. An easy penalty.

:37:32.:37:42.

They would have expected to be under the cosh for certain periods during

:37:43.:37:49.

this game, playing away from home against the French side, who have

:37:50.:37:54.

got a proud record, as we said. Ten match unbeaten streak here in

:37:55.:38:00.

France. Yes, from any age level, any French side. They very rarely lose.

:38:01.:38:11.

F U players getting treatment. There are lots of famous players on the

:38:12.:38:18.

pitch today. There was a famous name off the bench on Wales, Sid

:38:19.:38:22.

Blackmore is the son of Wally Blackmore who played for Wales at

:38:23.:38:27.

the first World Cup which was 30 years ago. 38 years ago today Wales

:38:28.:38:38.

actually beat England 27-3 to win the quadruple Triple Crown. One of

:38:39.:38:45.

the tries was scored by Elgin Rees. That is a historian on the side. He

:38:46.:38:50.

just nicked it from Clive Griffiths I believe it is only cap. That game

:38:51.:38:59.

was 27-3. That has gone loose and it is the danger man again, Ngandebe.

:39:00.:39:07.

He was just taken on by Conbeer on the far scrapped line -- touchline,

:39:08.:39:12.

they must get to scrappy. Wales are having success with that option.

:39:13.:39:19.

They go that little bit further upfield and France are struggling to

:39:20.:39:22.

deal with it but I think that is the third time that Ngandebe has been

:39:23.:39:26.

pushed into touch and that is an absolute coach killer for me, if

:39:27.:39:29.

you're being pushed into touch so easily you have to work a little bit

:39:30.:39:32.

and harder from the French perspective. Taken by Sean Moore.

:39:33.:39:48.

Morgan Williams surveys the options. Not too far that time. Conbeer gives

:39:49.:39:51.

chase. It is a good chase. It is that man, Couilloud, nothing

:39:52.:40:05.

much on for France here. They don't have to do anything drastic, Wales,

:40:06.:40:10.

just keep them pegged back. What you say about over the touchline? It is

:40:11.:40:15.

absolutely appalling play from France for me, they are just running

:40:16.:40:18.

into touch. That is the fourth time they have just been pushed into

:40:19.:40:22.

touch and given Wales the ball straight back. It is a great tackle

:40:23.:40:27.

here from Conbeer on Fartass. It will be a great battle all evening

:40:28.:40:34.

that. Conbeer is certainly one for the future, he showed his work-out

:40:35.:40:37.

in Italy with that try where he had no right to go in the corner, but he

:40:38.:40:43.

has got pace and power and all the attributes. He is still so young as

:40:44.:40:48.

well, only 18. He has another year himself. It wouldn't surprise me if

:40:49.:40:55.

we see him in the Scarlet 's setup next season. He did see Capelli

:40:56.:41:06.

going off for France earlier, that is Fartass. He is receiving

:41:07.:41:17.

treatment. They have got pace out wide in himself and Ngandebe.

:41:18.:41:24.

Ngandebe incidentally will be hoping for a better outing than last year

:41:25.:41:29.

when he was given two yellow cards. He needs to get his compass out and

:41:30.:41:38.

stay away from the touchline. Morgan Williams. France have slowed things

:41:39.:41:44.

up. Carre drives forwards into the heart of the Welsh field. Morgan

:41:45.:41:48.

Williams has a little snipe on the fringes. The option was very Keiran

:41:49.:41:54.

Williams set him off and he went off to the right hand side. Keiran

:41:55.:42:03.

Williams tried to get the off-load. He doesn't look very big, but as the

:42:04.:42:07.

boys were mentioning he is so powerful and so difficult to trap.

:42:08.:42:14.

We saw his tries in Scotland when he scored five so far in the campaign.

:42:15.:42:19.

Scotland, he got a brace up there, as he did last week. He has been

:42:20.:42:25.

their standout player for an absolute country mile. He is they go

:42:26.:42:30.

to man, whether country -- attack or offence, he gives them their out. He

:42:31.:42:35.

was go forward and always beat the first offender, he leads the

:42:36.:42:37.

defensive line and he is the defensive leader so here's their

:42:38.:42:42.

man. He is their skipper this evening and he is playing

:42:43.:42:45.

particularly well. This is Ben Jones. This would be a handy three

:42:46.:42:53.

points for his team anti-knock sit over no problem at all. A handy

:42:54.:43:00.

cushion developing for the Wales under 20s. Just what they needed

:43:01.:43:04.

after France had come back into the game. Yellow macro Fartass had come

:43:05.:43:08.

back into it most definitely in the last ten minutes but Wales have

:43:09.:43:14.

shown some composure. I like their experience and they are holding onto

:43:15.:43:17.

the ball and not playing too much rugby in their own half. They have

:43:18.:43:20.

got the territory and they will always pick up your penalty and two

:43:21.:43:24.

and that is just what they have done and picked up those three points.

:43:25.:43:29.

N'Tamack is back on the money again but it is back to Tarrant.

:43:30.:43:45.

Taken my Cros, but it is a bit scrappy by the fence once more and

:43:46.:43:51.

Wales Pioline and try and put pressure on their opponents. No

:43:52.:43:55.

cohesion at the moment in terms of the French play. That was almost

:43:56.:44:00.

taken as an interception but it could work for France here. They

:44:01.:44:06.

have managed to keep it alive but lost possession and the chance to

:44:07.:44:12.

counter. There are men out there, and one of them is that man, Keiran

:44:13.:44:23.

Williams. Again Williams saw that there was an option out wide. It is

:44:24.:44:30.

attacking rugby that is the order of the day from the Welsh 15. That was

:44:31.:44:38.

just a little bit too long from Keiran Williams so he gave the ball

:44:39.:44:41.

back to France but they have the territory.

:44:42.:44:52.

Couilloud to N'Tamack and they relieve a bit of pressure. Wide open

:44:53.:45:06.

spaces behind Ngandebe and that was an effective kick from Jones. They

:45:07.:45:10.

will be happy overall with that because, again, they have won the

:45:11.:45:17.

territory battle. He is using that particular where the moment. The

:45:18.:45:20.

cakes are maybe not quite on the button but because that chase and

:45:21.:45:24.

that defensive line is so good for Wales at the moment they are coming

:45:25.:45:27.

out there and on the finish positively every time. Burroughs is

:45:28.:45:36.

on in that the place of Fartass. Incidentally he played last week. I

:45:37.:45:44.

am disappointed to see Fartass go. He has been so lively.

:45:45.:45:57.

Cretin has gone off and Capelli is back on. I think the game is

:45:58.:46:15.

finished for Fartass. If Wales can make

:46:16.:46:15.

another try here. They get points every time they had down here and

:46:16.:46:28.

that is what I like about them. Dombrandt drives on and again there

:46:29.:46:32.

is another penalty and if they pick these penalties off it is going to

:46:33.:46:37.

be a tough day for France, and they look comfortable out there at the

:46:38.:46:40.

moment. An interesting decision, do they go for postal order? He has

:46:41.:46:47.

signalled to go for the corner but I like the Wales are doing. They are

:46:48.:46:53.

trying to take the stage and the intimidation factor out of it and it

:46:54.:46:56.

is working particular well at the moment. They are frustrating their

:46:57.:47:03.

appointments. The crowd is quiet and it is all going to plan at the

:47:04.:47:11.

moment. -- their opponents. Ben Jones sizes this one up. It is the

:47:12.:47:16.

wrong side for him as a left footed kicker.

:47:17.:47:19.

James tries to draw it round and it is on target. Fantastic kick once

:47:20.:47:40.

again by Ben Jones of the Blues. Great stuff from Wales.

:47:41.:47:47.

I am with the Wales under 20s defence coach, how impressive as the

:47:48.:47:51.

defence being from your point of view? I am really happy with the

:47:52.:47:54.

defensive contact, without four turnover so far and we're managing

:47:55.:47:58.

to bides time and get some width but we are too narrow a round ruck

:47:59.:48:01.

chain. We have got enough wits between our defenders at this time

:48:02.:48:06.

but the scoreboard makes for good reading. If we can get the next

:48:07.:48:09.

quarter they had to score three The Met is our main aim but so

:48:10.:48:21.

far so. Went on we expected Wells way of play we had been used to this

:48:22.:48:26.

tournament? The game is very stop start which is not what we won but

:48:27.:48:29.

that will be a key focus for us. Richard Hodges there will be very

:48:30.:48:33.

happy with the work done in his role as the defence coach. That is their

:48:34.:48:39.

fourth kick off that they have tried to target Corrie Tarrant. Wales are

:48:40.:48:44.

struggling to deal with that at the moment so maybe they need to just

:48:45.:48:48.

move position and get some players around to help Corrie Tarrant out

:48:49.:48:54.

there. The handling errors make for grim reading for France at the

:48:55.:48:59.

moment. Five handling errors to one. They have hurt themselves they are

:49:00.:49:02.

failing to deal with the pressure that Wales are putting them under.

:49:03.:49:06.

This is where they have had the upper hand and they have won a

:49:07.:49:09.

penalty once again. If there is one area that Wales had been under

:49:10.:49:13.

pressure in the first 40 it is the scrum. Came from a touchdown just in

:49:14.:49:22.

front of us as Steff Thomas again has signalled to Mike Adamson at the

:49:23.:49:25.

number three is down and there were some pretty decent kick into the

:49:26.:49:33.

corner there. Thomas Laclayat under Boniface are putting pressure on

:49:34.:49:36.

there. They have a huge front row, as we mentioned. There is now

:49:37.:49:46.

defensive work for Wales. He was contemplating wisely then. Through

:49:47.:49:54.

card goes to the back, to the tail, and just about gets his man. Wales

:49:55.:50:04.

have given away a penalty. The outstretched arm of Mike Adamson

:50:05.:50:09.

indicates an advantage. This is where they need to show some

:50:10.:50:13.

character in the final ten minutes of the first half. France attack on

:50:14.:50:22.

the fringes, through their big and burly forwards. Wales are committing

:50:23.:50:27.

so little men to the breakdown. N'Tamack or doesn't want the ball is

:50:28.:50:31.

hands because he is faced with ten men in front of him said this is the

:50:32.:50:36.

fifth kick and goal on the trot now. Driven on this time by Frank Oz. The

:50:37.:50:43.

openside. Changing direction is Couilloud, the flat pass to

:50:44.:50:51.

Ngandebe. Ngandebe is put down. Moving ever closer to the French try

:50:52.:50:56.

line in the distance. The crowd sensed it as well. Boniface drives

:50:57.:51:05.

on the offload. It goes to Verhaeghe and another penalty is going to come

:51:06.:51:09.

towards France. The pressure is beginning to tell, as they drive on

:51:10.:51:17.

into that corner, still on for the forwards. I don't think the ball

:51:18.:51:21.

will appear here as they drive on. Another shove could do it. Wales are

:51:22.:51:30.

desperately trying to keep them out as Francoz is right on the try line.

:51:31.:51:34.

Desperate defence from the men in red. Can they keep them out? They

:51:35.:51:39.

are right there but they have to go back. There was a high tackle

:51:40.:51:45.

earlier in that move but Wales only just keeping their opponents out.

:51:46.:51:55.

Rhun Williams just that kept them out. Well, it was definitely high.

:51:56.:52:09.

Mike Adamson wants a second look at this one. He has trotted over to the

:52:10.:52:17.

other side of the field to get a bit closer to the big screen here. The

:52:18.:52:24.

former Scottish referee is the TMO. Rhun Williams could be in hot water

:52:25.:52:28.

here. The directives are now so strict on any foul play. He has

:52:29.:52:37.

caught him quite forcefully there. Agreed, agreed. Will the man from

:52:38.:52:44.

North Wales get his marching orders here? Mike Adamson has seen the

:52:45.:52:54.

footage. Rhun Williams will be given yellow and it will be ten minutes in

:52:55.:53:03.

the bin. Disappointment for the visitors. They will be under

:53:04.:53:08.

pressure and down to 14 men. I don't we could have too many arguments

:53:09.:53:13.

about that though, the first contact straightaway was across the chain,

:53:14.:53:15.

and here's a little bit of a swinging arm. It is unfortunate for

:53:16.:53:18.

Rhun Williams commie has been playing well but he has 40 minutes

:53:19.:53:22.

to get himself back on the park and to make an impact. It was just

:53:23.:53:28.

instinctive but, as we say, since the new directives you just can't

:53:29.:53:29.

get away with it. Everybody knows now,

:53:30.:53:46.

players, coaches, fans, and as soon as any contact is made them is just

:53:47.:53:49.

something you have to accept and get on with it. A tough time for Wales.

:53:50.:53:52.

They are under pressure and under 14 men. This is a crucial time in the

:53:53.:53:55.

context of the game. If they can keep France out here it will be such

:53:56.:53:59.

a psychological boost. You can see the Wales have just got Corey

:54:00.:54:09.

Baldwin there. No surprises, France try to drive it on. That is Baptiste

:54:10.:54:16.

Couilloud rounds to N'Tamack and then to Ngandebe on the scissors.

:54:17.:54:24.

They have men out wide, as Couilloud spots an overlap. Almost true is

:54:25.:54:28.

Millet. So many options and Couilloud once more. So many men on

:54:29.:54:33.

the far side, and it is going to be so difficult for Wales to keep them

:54:34.:54:37.

out. Couilloud, and through card rides on. -- for card. It has gone

:54:38.:54:49.

to the left. They have to score surely here, driven on by Uberti,

:54:50.:54:56.

and nobody was marking Ngandebe. Still they are short. But the

:54:57.:55:03.

pressure is relentless. Wave after wave of attacking options here for

:55:04.:55:15.

the French. Knock-on I think. Keiran Williams is definitely... We will

:55:16.:55:19.

have to see. He is having a quick look here. Jim will be called once

:55:20.:55:29.

again to see if there was a try score. Needs to have his running

:55:30.:55:34.

shoes on. Yes or no for potential double movement? It is Boniface who

:55:35.:55:47.

was on the ground. He wriggled his way over the line. Call that one.

:55:48.:55:56.

Double movement for me., double movement. He stopped and they tried

:55:57.:56:02.

to go again. Add a second bite of it, Keiran Williams protesting. They

:56:03.:56:08.

will have an anxious wait. I am looking at the players that were

:56:09.:56:11.

short of the line, he them propels himself forward again with a

:56:12.:56:16.

secondary movement. The player short of the line propels himself forwards

:56:17.:56:22.

so we have a nap double movement and no try. When I go I think that will

:56:23.:56:27.

be Wales favour. He's going back to the scrum! No try that it is going

:56:28.:56:37.

back to around advantage. This tough period goes on for Wales. No try for

:56:38.:56:49.

Hugo Boniface as the time ebbs away. Five and a half minutes to go and

:56:50.:56:53.

what are five and a half minutes it is for Wales, to keep their

:56:54.:56:58.

opponents out. You can just pick up on the refs microphone there saying

:56:59.:57:01.

that it is two or three scrums that have gone against you now, Wales,

:57:02.:57:06.

and the position in the field is going to be so dangerous. They must

:57:07.:57:12.

concede a penalty try. France know it, they sense that this is Wales 's

:57:13.:57:14.

Achilles heel. Kalou hangs in there from

:57:15.:57:31.

Morgan-Williams. Now then. We have already got a man in the bin and we

:57:32.:57:36.

won't be surprised to see another one join Rhun Williams shortly if

:57:37.:57:43.

this goes on. The scrum needs to set up now, no other options. I don't

:57:44.:57:49.

think the ball is going to develop here from the France perspective,

:57:50.:57:53.

they just have to go again. Morgan-Williams just gets on

:57:54.:57:56.

Couilloud there. There is nothing worse than having a scrum-half snap

:57:57.:58:02.

your wrists. It is great from Morgan-Williams, he is killing the

:58:03.:58:10.

ball. Serious questions being asked of the Welsh shaped here. If they

:58:11.:58:16.

can survive this remaining five minutes before half-time I think

:58:17.:58:20.

everybody will get a gold star but it is a big, big, important five

:58:21.:58:24.

minutes for Wales. It will give them a serious lift, as bigger left as

:58:25.:58:30.

the try was for Aled Ward early on, but here they go once more. The

:58:31.:58:42.

power and the weight comes through. It is out from Couilloud to N'Tamack

:58:43.:58:48.

and his bedsit wide to Ngandebe. He was marked and Buros once more but

:58:49.:58:54.

the try has come for Couilloud. Baptiste Couilloud comes through and

:58:55.:58:57.

it had to happen in the end, the pressure told on the Welsh. They

:58:58.:59:03.

were down to 14 men in France at the end get their just reward. It was

:59:04.:59:10.

good from France, nearly botched it themselves but they got that man

:59:11.:59:14.

over on the back line. Ngandebe just comes short on the 15 and Cros came

:59:15.:59:20.

to narrow and yet to be in the far 15 but Couilloud is the decent

:59:21.:59:24.

scrum-half Andy is a quick ball and he sniped Sandy has to be one of

:59:25.:59:28.

those players there. Any tight five and Wales have been working so hard

:59:29.:59:31.

in the previous scrums and they would struggle to get where they

:59:32.:59:33.

would normally be around that breakdown. If we're honest, that has

:59:34.:59:41.

been coming, and Wales did well to survive for so long. There should be

:59:42.:59:46.

an extra two points for N'Tamack as well. It was coming for a while. He

:59:47.:59:57.

cuts the deficit to six. Wales will want to go into half-time without

:59:58.:00:04.

giving anything else away. Yes, they need to try and kill the clock can I

:00:05.:00:08.

get into half-time with a score as it is, at 13-7. The French tails up

:00:09.:00:13.

in the crowd is up and it is a very loud and intimidating place at the

:00:14.:00:17.

moment and Wales need to kill the clock. That is exactly what they are

:00:18.:00:21.

doing as Ben Jones is walking towards the ball and in no rush and

:00:22.:00:26.

over 24 drops before he finds the perfect patch of grass to kick the

:00:27.:00:27.

restart from. Jones goes long. A bit of space for

:00:28.:00:45.

the winner. Over the ten metre line. He tried the off-load and it is

:00:46.:00:49.

still there. It is all France now. The momentum has swung the home side

:00:50.:01:00.

way. They have men out wide. As the stream through. There will be an

:01:01.:01:11.

advantage. Baptiste Couilloud. It is a kick through and it will be a try

:01:12.:01:16.

for France. Great opportunist try and it is showing his skills. A

:01:17.:01:35.

little dab through. Very intelligent play from him. Obviously Williams is

:01:36.:01:41.

in the sin-bin so Wales have nobody there. He just rolled edge through

:01:42.:01:49.

and dived over the line. Perfect tactical play for France. His father

:01:50.:01:54.

was a great footballer and he is showing the skills as well. A

:01:55.:02:01.

shell-shocked Wales have to regroup. They have been blitzed with two

:02:02.:02:12.

tries in the space of two minutes. Now with a chance to put his team

:02:13.:02:16.

into the lead. If we could rewind the clock, we said they did not need

:02:17.:02:22.

to concede before half time but it was a lovely brick of play. When you

:02:23.:02:33.

got a guy trying to control the game like that guy there. They are going

:02:34.:02:38.

to struggle to prevent it. He slotted over as we see the second

:02:39.:02:45.

try once more and in a half where Wales looked comfortable at one

:02:46.:02:52.

stage, has swung firmly back in the home side's labour.

:02:53.:03:01.

It all started from this very kick-off. Going down the touchline.

:03:02.:03:12.

And that is that. So, Wales looked promising early on. But they have

:03:13.:03:24.

been hit by two tries by Baptiste Couilloud after the early try from

:03:25.:03:28.

Aled Ward. It means that France under 20s are up by 14 points to 13

:03:29.:03:34.

at the break. That school the pitch side. Would you say at half-time to

:03:35.:03:44.

galvanise the boys Keko we just need to regroup. In the first 25 or 30

:03:45.:03:48.

minutes, we should great composure. When we got the ball in hand, we

:03:49.:03:52.

showed some great threats. At that of discipline around the set piece.

:03:53.:03:58.

We will talk about the penalties at half-time. Just get that control

:03:59.:04:01.

back into the game. Is it fixable? Definitely. Go for it. Begin changed

:04:02.:04:09.

complexion in the last 56 minutes. A great start for will smack. Ben

:04:10.:04:14.

Jones with the initial break. Aled Ward with the finish to put Wales

:04:15.:04:18.

ahead with just five minutes on the clock. He had his kicking goods as

:04:19.:04:23.

well did Ben Jones and it was a 13-0 and up until this point. Rhun

:04:24.:04:28.

Williams shown a yellow card for a high tackle and off he goes and in

:04:29.:04:31.

the period that followed, Franz pummelled about Welsh line.

:04:32.:04:36.

Eventually the numbers and pressure told and it was the scrum-half,

:04:37.:04:40.

Baptiste Couilloud, who went first of all. On the Stuart Malcolm

:04:41.:04:49.

half-time, we saw this. Some of the former French international,

:04:50.:04:54.

crossing not only to give brands their second try but to put them

:04:55.:04:57.

into the lead as well. 14-13 after a period which will smack maybe hadn't

:04:58.:05:02.

dominated but surely they have the upper hand. If we look at the

:05:03.:05:08.

statistics, Franz ahead in terms of possession and territory but Wales

:05:09.:05:11.

ahead of the numbers one. France were on top in the set piece. That

:05:12.:05:17.

is quite a turnaround in the space of five minutes. But so often

:05:18.:05:20.

happens when a yellow card is shown, it changes the compaction. We were

:05:21.:05:25.

discussing but Wales had done so well to quell any idea of a good

:05:26.:05:30.

start from the French. The crowd was silenced and Wales got that crucial

:05:31.:05:33.

score followed up a penalty and France looked a little bit

:05:34.:05:38.

flustered. A lot of errors in their game but the pressure told upfront

:05:39.:05:41.

and the yellow card inevitably means that the pressure gets converted

:05:42.:05:46.

into points and they took a well taken try but the sucker punch was

:05:47.:05:49.

the one at the end. They are going in at half-time down and it is a

:05:50.:05:54.

very different team talk. But yellow card did prove critical. We were

:05:55.:05:59.

talking as it happened and I think our reaction was, it wasn't a yellow

:06:00.:06:02.

card but you see repeated replays like that and we know how harsh the

:06:03.:06:09.

laws are to be applied now. The referee didn't have much of a

:06:10.:06:12.

choice? No, you're always going to steer that way. It was just a

:06:13.:06:19.

reaction but the more you play it in slow motion, the worse it looks. You

:06:20.:06:25.

couldn't argue with him going off. He ran straightaway and change the

:06:26.:06:30.

complexion of the game. Wales took the sting out of France and that is

:06:31.:06:34.

where they kick you. They did superbly well and the last ten

:06:35.:06:37.

minutes, but pressure told. Will smack's pressure creeping. It could

:06:38.:06:45.

be a long night with the possession statistics and territory stats. It

:06:46.:06:50.

will be a tough defensive effort to come back from that but the way they

:06:51.:06:53.

started that game, they are more than the bubble of getting back into

:06:54.:06:57.

it, get up to 15 and give a good account of themselves. Wales did

:06:58.:07:01.

start brilliantly. Have the silenced the crowd and it is a big crowd. The

:07:02.:07:06.

way they came out of the blocks and the confidence that Ben Jones should

:07:07.:07:10.

there in his run for the line, he maybe should have passed earlier but

:07:11.:07:13.

Aled Ward was over for the try. Good follow up from Aled Ward but Ben

:07:14.:07:18.

Jones highlighted a dispatch. They have built up the player and he

:07:19.:07:21.

recognises that in front of him, it is the French tight head and he is

:07:22.:07:27.

going to back himself all day to go for that. Aled Ward sticks with him.

:07:28.:07:31.

He should have given it their two players but they got a lucky bounce

:07:32.:07:34.

and it was a good finish. Follow that up with a conversion and

:07:35.:07:39.

penalty but as I said, this guy is playing with confidence but they got

:07:40.:07:45.

that start and it has given them a settled in the game. France haven't

:07:46.:07:49.

run away with it, they have their tails up and what intelligent play

:07:50.:07:56.

with Williams, to kick it behind when is no full-back? Following in

:07:57.:08:00.

his fathers of the steps. We talked about the set piece and the fact it

:08:01.:08:04.

was creaking. When Wales building that lead from it doesn't matter

:08:05.:08:07.

because as long as you have some distance between yourself and the

:08:08.:08:11.

opposition, you can handle scrums behind the head perhaps but now

:08:12.:08:14.

France have that half-time lead, but will be a bigger worry for Wales. It

:08:15.:08:18.

will change the concept of the game for will smack. Once you are 13

:08:19.:08:23.

points ahead, all of a sudden, they are playing a different type of

:08:24.:08:26.

game. Once they have seen and how the referee is refereeing, which is

:08:27.:08:31.

keeping the ball in the scrum, but will put the pressure on and get

:08:32.:08:36.

this card is kicked to touch and use the power game and that is what has

:08:37.:08:39.

got them back into the game with the yellow card as well. But a great

:08:40.:08:43.

deal to take home about the set piece at the moment. France exerting

:08:44.:08:49.

their power in that department but a couple of flashes of positivity for

:08:50.:08:52.

Wales that we have seen on the outside backs and as we said at the

:08:53.:08:55.

start of the programme, it was the attack that was giving us so much

:08:56.:09:00.

pleasure watching them in the last few weeks. Keiran Williams perhaps

:09:01.:09:02.

hasn't had the amount of time to shine as he had in recent weeks but

:09:03.:09:05.

there have been a few trademark busts up the middle and some siding

:09:06.:09:12.

runs. He is looking to lead the team. He has been involved in

:09:13.:09:16.

crucial tackles. This was really unlucky because he has, from his own

:09:17.:09:21.

22 and he has just taken his eye off the ball a last-minute. Just

:09:22.:09:28.

grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck and giving it a go and that

:09:29.:09:32.

is what you want to see from your leaders. Your players are playing in

:09:33.:09:36.

form and he has no shortage of courage, but the show. This was a

:09:37.:09:42.

tried saving tackle, that Fisher. That scrum did come from that but he

:09:43.:09:47.

is a key player for will smack the moment. We will need his leadership

:09:48.:09:51.

because we talked about the coaches coming up with solutions at

:09:52.:09:54.

half-time and to fix those creaking problems in the set piece but you

:09:55.:09:57.

will need guys like him to step up and say, we have been here before

:09:58.:10:00.

and on these games, what will we do to win it in the second half? It

:10:01.:10:04.

shows the resolve and when people the cup to you, they have shown that

:10:05.:10:11.

in games previously. A tough place to go with a big crowd. He did the

:10:12.:10:15.

hard part, they silence that crowd and got themselves into the game

:10:16.:10:18.

which is normally the hardest part of going to France but it is for

:10:19.:10:22.

these big guys to stand up. They have shown a class and just to carry

:10:23.:10:26.

on in the brakes went on the first half, another few bills, get the

:10:27.:10:31.

confidence back up and get back up to 15 men as quick as possible

:10:32.:10:34.

without conceding any more points. Then give a good account of

:10:35.:10:40.

yourselves. We can't ignore the huge news this week that Evan Hansen is

:10:41.:10:46.

returning to regional rugby, signing a new contract with the Dragons to

:10:47.:10:53.

come back next season. Latterly at Bristol, that is a big signing for

:10:54.:10:56.

the Dragons despite his advancing in years? Is, he is, he is getting on a

:10:57.:11:01.

little bit but he is in good condition. He was has-been and keeps

:11:02.:11:05.

himself in good nick. He played really well in the Premiership,

:11:06.:11:09.

albeit rarely because of injury and that is the crucial thing. If the

:11:10.:11:13.

Dragons can get on the field and keep him on, he will excellent at

:11:14.:11:18.

ten or 12 and because he is so knowledgeable of the game, he puts

:11:19.:11:22.

people in space. He is one of the best players I have ever coached in

:11:23.:11:25.

terms of his abilities and maybe lacking a little bit of pace but he

:11:26.:11:28.

creates space around the others who have pace. He will do a lot of the

:11:29.:11:34.

field for the Dragons in training. Looking forward to seeing him back

:11:35.:11:38.

at Wales rusher. Difficult to believe this is the final "It is

:11:39.:11:42.

Nations. It has flown by. Before we wrap it up, there is of course a

:11:43.:11:53.

bumper weekend to come. Wales's women will be hoping to end

:11:54.:11:57.

a disappointing campaign on a high. Their final match against France

:11:58.:12:01.

kicks off at eight and is live on the BBC website. Before that, at

:12:02.:12:13.

2:45, Wales go in search of second place as they have a sixth win in a

:12:14.:12:18.

row against France in their sights. The plan has to be spot on against

:12:19.:12:23.

France because they almost pick a big pack anyway, that if there are

:12:24.:12:31.

given when you go to France. So, France against Wales. Neither team

:12:32.:12:36.

can win the tournament so that those Welsh players, it will be about

:12:37.:12:39.

putting their hands up for Lions selection. Who in the Wales squad

:12:40.:12:45.

has the most to prove? Everybody. They have all been written off at

:12:46.:12:49.

times but they have come back and put a big performances in. It

:12:50.:12:52.

performance last week but there's lots. There's boys that have big

:12:53.:13:00.

games in this last game that can get them on the plane, that's for sure.

:13:01.:13:07.

There's maybe five you would say with a massive performance and a

:13:08.:13:10.

good result would take the spoils and get on that plane. We hope to

:13:11.:13:15.

have more time to talk about this but here, it is about the under 20s

:13:16.:13:20.

and we can return for the match and Ben Jones is about to kick off the

:13:21.:13:25.

second half. The one change for Wales at

:13:26.:13:30.

half-time, Keiron Assiratti coming on at tight head in place of Steff

:13:31.:13:36.

Thomas. They have been under a bit of pressure in that area and Keiron

:13:37.:13:41.

Assiratti has been sent on to try and stem the flow. I think it's

:13:42.:13:46.

probable either right call. They've been under a little bit of pressure

:13:47.:13:50.

in the first 40 minutes but the previous games, Keiron Assiratti,

:13:51.:13:55.

Rhys Carre, they've done particularly well up front so it's a

:13:56.:13:58.

good choice of they want to win this game. They've brought young Keiron

:13:59.:14:02.

Assiratti onto the field. They lost the line-out and we always talk

:14:03.:14:09.

about momentum being the key thing. It went from's way in the final ten

:14:10.:14:14.

minutes first half, a big third quarter for the Wales under 20s.

:14:15.:14:22.

Baptiste Couilloud, one of the try scorers, in that first half. He has

:14:23.:14:31.

been the orchestrator, working as most French teams do for nine. He

:14:32.:14:36.

has been playing he was on fire for them against Italy, but what will

:14:37.:14:41.

smack me to get back to is what they have, France have an overlap here.

:14:42.:14:48.

Corey Baldwin are trying to get back. A final forward pass and the

:14:49.:14:55.

call came very late on. Some of the players still haven't heard the

:14:56.:15:03.

whistle. I thought he was away. Very, going back to what we were

:15:04.:15:08.

talking about, Wales were very successful, is this a forward pass?

:15:09.:15:13.

Is a tight call. Wales have got away with it. They had a lot of success

:15:14.:15:19.

with in that opening 20 minutes, they were very structured and had a

:15:20.:15:23.

big kicking game and as the half wore on, where France had a little

:15:24.:15:27.

bit of success is, they want stricter, quick ball and tempo. That

:15:28.:15:33.

is what Wales unfortunately because they were sliding off the tackle but

:15:34.:15:37.

it would giving members of the need to get back to what they did

:15:38.:15:39.

successfully in that opening 20 minutes of this game. Bring that

:15:40.:15:45.

little bit more urgency and tackle technique and the kicking game.

:15:46.:15:54.

Keiron Assiratti joining Corrie Tarrant and Rhys Carre. Wales still

:15:55.:16:08.

down to 14 men. He has just come back on so they are back to the Phil

:16:09.:16:13.

Conran into. The French have taken advantage during that time. They

:16:14.:16:21.

have a man over here. There was a man out. Ryan Conbeer, I'm not sure

:16:22.:16:27.

they really needed to kick that one. They should have held onto that one

:16:28.:16:33.

but a cracking start for Wales. There are under pressure here,

:16:34.:16:38.

France. Rhun Williams certainly has got both Mac very fast. His first

:16:39.:16:43.

season with the Blues since joining from our GC. That is what because

:16:44.:16:49.

use, that the top end pace. You cannot replace it and if you think

:16:50.:16:55.

France cannot afford to kick loosely to the three on the field here but a

:16:56.:16:59.

cracking start from Wales. Just here there is two on one here and Ryan

:17:00.:17:05.

Conbeer was waiting for the past that never came. You just got to

:17:06.:17:09.

have that little of composure here and the thought process has to be

:17:10.:17:15.

more clear. That will come of age. Will Spike are here in this final

:17:16.:17:19.

third if they can just hold onto the ball. They are elementary mistakes

:17:20.:17:25.

at the vital moment. That is what they were doing in the first 20

:17:26.:17:29.

minutes of this game. That was a bit sloppy. A good kick. Rhun Williams

:17:30.:17:45.

just as enough. They have one the territorial battle, France. France

:17:46.:17:50.

have definitely come out trying to up the tempo and they are looking

:17:51.:17:54.

for the quick throw ins, the quick tackle, they are looking to play

:17:55.:17:58.

that little bit more. They know that is the strength of their game and

:17:59.:18:03.

that is what France is looking to do at the moment. Wales competing well.

:18:04.:18:20.

Baptiste Couilloud, another star of the first half. A crucial, crucial

:18:21.:18:23.

period, this, as Baptiste Couilloud it out. He is grabbed by Rhys Carre.

:18:24.:18:38.

Wales have found out so there is nothing on the frontier. Trying to

:18:39.:18:49.

peg Wales back into their 22 and that is

:18:50.:18:56.

effective play. We have seen his silky skills but he has a good

:18:57.:19:02.

kicking game as well. Superb work from him. We can see from the

:19:03.:19:06.

previous phases, his vision, he was always looking, where is the space?

:19:07.:19:11.

Is exactly what he did in the previous two kicks and you can only

:19:12.:19:17.

see well done and tap him on the back. He is in the Toulouse Academy.

:19:18.:19:27.

His father of course won the first-ever Heineken Cup back in 96

:19:28.:19:32.

against Cardiff. That is one of those penalties you were alluding to

:19:33.:19:36.

in the first half of the coaching team will be IT and leave the dizzy.

:19:37.:19:47.

Wales will be hoping to get more structure into their game try to

:19:48.:19:56.

slow the game down, take the energy out of what is in the stadium at the

:19:57.:19:57.

moment. That is definitely his other son. He

:19:58.:20:21.

might be one for the future as well. Things we weren't seeing in the

:20:22.:20:24.

first half, sloppy from Elias El Ansari. It might cost them dear.

:20:25.:20:45.

marginally higher again but play goes on. He brings in the Mac onto

:20:46.:21:04.

the ball. Again there will be a penalty. They will have to come

:21:05.:21:14.

back. It hasn't gone forward. Still playing advantage is Mike Adamson.

:21:15.:21:21.

We've after wave, phase after phase of blue shirt now. They've got to

:21:22.:21:26.

start dominating in collisions. They've got to get off that line a

:21:27.:21:30.

bit harder, they cannot afford from damage or two every time. That is

:21:31.:21:39.

the Welsh try line and so difficult to stop. At its goes, straight

:21:40.:21:45.

through the middle. Gabriel Ngandebe. It has gone forward. There

:21:46.:21:54.

was an advantage for offside. There is a bit of an savouries of the

:21:55.:22:00.

ball. I think Ntamack got offended off the ball. That is why there is a

:22:01.:22:10.

melee of players just spoiling over a bit. The big decision here and

:22:11.:22:22.

Wales will happily see France going for the six year. A double advantage

:22:23.:22:30.

as Mike Adamson goes for most of all offside but the second one, he was

:22:31.:22:40.

doing breakdown, Mike Adamson. He will go back to that for corner. A

:22:41.:22:49.

tough time for Keiran Williams's team here. There is a discussion.

:22:50.:22:58.

Or, a sense they got advantage in that area. Wales scrum has been

:22:59.:23:04.

creaking. We listen to the French National Anthem developing around

:23:05.:23:13.

the stadium. This is where these car and Keiron Assiratti, nearly every

:23:14.:23:20.

set piece scrum so hopefully with the addition of Keiron Assiratti to

:23:21.:23:27.

the starting position, he can sure this up a little. Jason changing

:23:28.:23:40.

things. Reuben Morgan-Williams is off, Dane Blacker in his place. Dane

:23:41.:23:44.

Blacker scored last week against Ireland. He has a good looking game

:23:45.:23:48.

so that doesn't surprise me why he has been brought on at this time to

:23:49.:23:52.

try and get that little bit of experience, get that knowledge and

:23:53.:23:56.

kicking game back in and relieve some pressure for Wales. First of

:23:57.:24:00.

all they have to front up here. This is a big test of Keiran Williams's

:24:01.:24:10.

team. A crucial moment. Ten minutes into the second half. The huge eight

:24:11.:24:23.

of France trying to put the squeeze on Wales. Plenty of options as well

:24:24.:24:36.

for France if they don't keep it tight. They have a four to split.

:24:37.:24:43.

That means Dane Blacker will have to stay where he is but it is the shove

:24:44.:24:46.

that come through the power game, it is still there for a Quentin Walcker

:24:47.:24:53.

who ploughs over from short range. The referee will have a look to see.

:24:54.:24:59.

I think he is checking if it was not done. It was a Alexandre Roumat who

:25:00.:25:06.

got over but I think he wants to check just to see if it was the

:25:07.:25:11.

grounding that was valid. He definitely got over the line. That

:25:12.:25:21.

is Quentin Walcker. There he goes. There was no way he was going to be

:25:22.:25:27.

stopped. There is no date that that is the third try. In the last 15

:25:28.:25:43.

minutes of this game, we have seen three tries I don't know what they

:25:44.:25:54.

are looking at here. Just chill this one again to confirm. It's a try.

:25:55.:26:10.

Alexandre Roumat who has put out his third try and it is another son of a

:26:11.:26:23.

French legend who gets France's third. You can see with the upper

:26:24.:26:29.

hand France had enough scrum. James Botham is down and they have to

:26:30.:26:32.

scrummage with all eight and he is just too slow, too late coming off

:26:33.:26:36.

the back of that scrum to give Ben Jones a hand in tackling. It is all

:26:37.:26:43.

going France's Way now. It will be very, very difficult for Wales in

:26:44.:26:52.

this final 30 minutes. No way will spike going to stop that. Five

:26:53.:26:59.

metres out. Yes, it had gone to the right-hand side of the scrum. It

:27:00.:27:02.

takes both of them out of the equation, effectively. Well, they

:27:03.:27:14.

have just been blitzed either side of the heart by those tries. They

:27:15.:27:19.

just need to regroup somehow to get a fertility back in the game. France

:27:20.:27:23.

have really gone through the gears for me. They have gone through two

:27:24.:27:28.

or three years and they are trying to keep the tempo high, trying to

:27:29.:27:32.

keep the ball on the field on the cake and therefore think Wales to

:27:33.:27:38.

try and play out. That Aled Ward try seems a long time ago but they are

:27:39.:27:41.

still in this one, Rhun Williams could provide the spark they

:27:42.:27:48.

desperately need. Dane Blacker get this out to his forwards. On those

:27:49.:27:58.

Rhys Carre into the French wall. France are very quickly on the

:27:59.:28:07.

defensive line. They are behind the gain line once more and they are

:28:08.:28:16.

getting shoved back. There are the mistakes just beginning to creep

:28:17.:28:26.

into the Wales game. Another man mountain of a player. Ntamack just

:28:27.:28:34.

guiding his team down to the 22, and that is all they need to do now,

:28:35.:28:39.

keep pressure on their opponents. Wales, they are their own worst

:28:40.:28:42.

enemy at the moment. They cannot hold onto the ball, they ended up

:28:43.:28:46.

going through six bases there. They are losing collisions and they

:28:47.:28:49.

didn't have the physicality to get them of the gain line. At some

:28:50.:28:54.

point, people are owing to say, but try and get back instead of short

:28:55.:28:58.

sheep and try and get us back into that ascendancy. Ben Jones tried to

:28:59.:29:04.

play that little too much and they turned the ball straight over to

:29:05.:29:08.

France and they are now 15 metres from their own try line. Runs

:29:09.:29:10.

challenge once more and here they come. Baptiste Couilloud, they have

:29:11.:29:19.

men, they have to score out wide. And for the try has come. So, so

:29:20.:29:29.

easy in the end. They had so many men out wide and France now are

:29:30.:29:35.

dominating and it could be a tough, tough last quarter for the visitors.

:29:36.:29:40.

You can see the numbers that France had got out on a wide shot. Wales

:29:41.:29:46.

are simply too now. They defended ten metres from their line. They've

:29:47.:29:50.

got to keep that little bit of width. At the moment now, that got

:29:51.:29:55.

to do something, maybe that is a change or to or just to stop the

:29:56.:29:59.

momentum that brands are running with.

:30:00.:30:11.

Uberti goes over. He was a late change as well. It looks as if there

:30:12.:30:23.

will be some changes on the Welsh bench imminently. They most

:30:24.:30:31.

definitely need someone to break the game up, they need someone who will

:30:32.:30:34.

get their hands on the ball for that little bit of magic. They have a few

:30:35.:30:41.

impact players on the bench like Arwel Robson and Sid Blackmore so it

:30:42.:30:44.

will be very interesting to see who we see rolled onto the pitch now.

:30:45.:30:54.

More points, and they are really on top now. Great recognition from

:30:55.:31:03.

N'Tamack. The carriers effectively stopped and pulled out of the back

:31:04.:31:08.

to N'Tamack and it allowed him to play to the right channel and score

:31:09.:31:17.

the try. A few changes for Wales. Jason Strange trying to do

:31:18.:31:21.

something. I haven't got my binoculars so I can't quite see.

:31:22.:31:28.

Piazon in place of Corrie Tarrant, Jack Pope as well, he is on. He has

:31:29.:31:35.

come on for Sean Moore. The final replacement is Sid Blackmore instead

:31:36.:31:45.

of try scorer Aled Ward. So Jason Strange rolling the dice that he has

:31:46.:31:51.

to. You have two. For me I would even bring Robson and Lane on now

:31:52.:31:55.

they are chasing the game. They have got to do something and have some

:31:56.:32:01.

impact on game. Roll the dice, as long as the defensive line is set

:32:02.:32:05.

and you're walking together, you aren't going to concede too many

:32:06.:32:09.

trials but from an attacking perspective yacht to the summit

:32:10.:32:14.

different. They have given away a free kick from an early engagement

:32:15.:32:20.

are just those things that were not happening are affecting the Welsh

:32:21.:32:24.

game. We mentioned earlier that France were doing things like giving

:32:25.:32:32.

these easy outs and now Wales are doing it. They have the early

:32:33.:32:36.

engagement in the scrum. A few missed tackles creeping into the

:32:37.:32:39.

Welsh game as well, far more than their opponents, as many as 12

:32:40.:32:51.

during this game. Williams. Black and out it goes to midfield. They

:32:52.:32:59.

need a reply quickly. It has gone to ground. That could have gone

:33:00.:33:03.

anywhere. It is just the execution that is letting us down at the

:33:04.:33:10.

moment. The idea of there and the spaces in the way channel. Dane

:33:11.:33:14.

Blacker probably realises they need an injection into this game, an

:33:15.:33:15.

injection of pace. Dombrandt well marshalled by the

:33:16.:33:25.

French defence. Outer goes. Nicholas was slightly isolated on

:33:26.:33:43.

his slow ball. They have gone from one end of the field to another

:33:44.:33:48.

after six phases. Now what do you do? You want decision-makers to

:33:49.:33:51.

decide what to play next. It wasn't a great pass by Blacker. Back to

:33:52.:34:01.

Shane Lewis-Hughes. Just a bit laboured. It was coming and Wales

:34:02.:34:09.

have given a penalty away. There was just no zip to the Welsh attack, as

:34:10.:34:14.

we saw in those early parts. That is a recognition thing. Wales have lost

:34:15.:34:18.

Blacker and he went to the breakdown. The ball was free and

:34:19.:34:21.

available to be played but no one stepped up. He took it upon himself

:34:22.:34:25.

to be the ballplayer and that scrum-half effectively and in France

:34:26.:34:30.

have got in and turned it over and given themselves another crack at an

:34:31.:34:38.

attacking line-out. A few changes for France as well. Simon-Pierre

:34:39.:34:47.

Chauvac comes on in place of Etienne Fourcade. Another change on the

:34:48.:34:52.

front row with Pierre Bourgarit coming on for Ugo Boniface. Their

:34:53.:35:02.

work is done. Many of these players for France have had exposure as well

:35:03.:35:10.

in the Top 14. That is plain to see. You get that exposure, blame the top

:35:11.:35:14.

end with the best players and you train with the best players day in

:35:15.:35:17.

and day out and you will only improve. You will make mistakes at

:35:18.:35:20.

this age but in 18 months or two years' time it will make an awful

:35:21.:35:24.

lot of difference. N'Tamack runs out wide and straight through the

:35:25.:35:31.

middle. Geoffrey Cros, with no one laying a hand on the full-back and

:35:32.:35:39.

the French joy and bounded, but it is more misery for Wales. It is a

:35:40.:35:45.

fifth for the French. Superb play from France here. We said the two

:35:46.:35:50.

shortfall forward runners and it is a beautiful line from Geoffrey Cros.

:35:51.:35:55.

He has just gone on the outside of the Welsh defender. Ioan Nicholas

:35:56.:36:03.

Corey Baldwin were just a bit too narrow. That is the effect if you

:36:04.:36:07.

run a five or six line-up and you just have the forward running

:36:08.:36:10.

running short and no one wants to be cut down the middle. You have that

:36:11.:36:14.

bit of time and the knock-on effect it has if you are always narrow in

:36:15.:36:17.

the wider channels and that is where Wales have conceded but fair play to

:36:18.:36:23.

France, a lovely little try. Great line from Cros. What do Wales do

:36:24.:36:26.

now? Five tries they have conceded. N'Tamack just pushes that one wide,

:36:27.:36:46.

but it won't matter to match because they have a 20 point advantage. This

:36:47.:36:52.

is what we were talking about. N'Tamack just played that ball at

:36:53.:36:57.

the back. He was behind those two forward runners but it is a complete

:36:58.:37:00.

contrast to the opening 20 minutes of this game when Wales were

:37:01.:37:04.

completely in control. They had all the territory and all the possession

:37:05.:37:07.

and they were pulling the strings, and now since probably half an hour

:37:08.:37:13.

gone it has all been France. You were calling for Arwel Robson,

:37:14.:37:19.

commented police -- he is on in place of Ben Jones. Lets hope he can

:37:20.:37:28.

get forward a little bit more. He could become instrumental in this

:37:29.:37:35.

Wales line-up. Owen Lane is on as well, for Ioan Nicholas. That is

:37:36.:37:44.

them all out on the field. There are still 20 minutes left. It could get

:37:45.:37:48.

nasty. Wales have got to show character and because spirit and

:37:49.:37:53.

grit in this final 20. It comes down to team pride and personal pride. No

:37:54.:37:58.

player was to come off the field conceding 50 or 60 points. That is a

:37:59.:38:02.

personal pride thing of the professional Rugby player. No one

:38:03.:38:05.

wants to do that so everyone must work together and they have a good

:38:06.:38:08.

team spirit and he was hoping they can stay together.

:38:09.:38:25.

They switch it down on the left-hand side. Couilloud has has a prominent

:38:26.:38:38.

game for France. Couldn't get through that time. Baptiste

:38:39.:38:43.

Couilloud has a little snipe himself. He is always challenging

:38:44.:38:47.

that second or third defender and it is so hard to defend your five and

:38:48.:38:52.

you are tied in Europe and scrummaging and lifting in the scrum

:38:53.:38:59.

and you don't want NDP scrum-half coming at you. Berry as again,

:39:00.:39:02.

taking control and influencing proceedings. There was another

:39:03.:39:15.

penalty given away. This time against James Botham. He did have

:39:16.:39:26.

two calls only stayed locked in. He gave away a penalty. They just

:39:27.:39:37.

haven't been able to get a foothold. It has been an avalanche of points.

:39:38.:39:48.

When you have got those two guys, Couilloud and N'Tamack, they are

:39:49.:39:51.

pulling all the strings and effectively the puppeteers of this

:39:52.:39:54.

French squad. They have both been superb. If you get that in a side

:39:55.:39:59.

then they will never go too far wrong. Plenty of time to add to

:40:00.:40:10.

their 33 points. That time though the execution wasn't spot-on.

:40:11.:40:23.

Tom Mably was the final replacement, coming on for Rhys Carre. He has

:40:24.:40:36.

impressed, Rhys Carre. He is prominent. For me he has been one of

:40:37.:40:41.

the four players, he has played in every game of this Six Nations. He

:40:42.:40:46.

can scrummage, but defensively and attacking, you have seen him

:40:47.:40:49.

standing every now and again, he plays a tight little ball out the

:40:50.:40:53.

back so he is more than covering its own workload and he has a great

:40:54.:41:03.

future in front of him. Dylan Cretin is on for Geraci on the back row.

:41:04.:41:11.

France put on the squeeze, but a legally so that side. Round the

:41:12.:41:22.

corner and they wield it illegally. A bit of respite for Wales. Let us

:41:23.:41:37.

talk to Geraint Lewis. It has unravelled a bit since the

:41:38.:41:41.

excellent start. Why? We had a good start but we have me unable to

:41:42.:41:45.

control the ball, too many basic errors. Our set pieces have been

:41:46.:41:49.

very mixed and when you haven't got the ball out here and you are

:41:50.:41:54.

conceding terribly it becomes very difficult team to contain. Other

:41:55.:41:57.

leaders out there who could get Wales back into in the last 15? We

:41:58.:42:03.

have some experienced boys now, the bench of come on and I know some of

:42:04.:42:07.

them are desperate to prove their worth so hopefully we can grab some

:42:08.:42:11.

initiative back in the game and get some ball in play and trying get it

:42:12.:42:16.

back into our game. Thank you very much for your time. You very much.

:42:17.:42:24.

The thoughts of Iran to Lewis, a difficult task that they have to

:42:25.:42:28.

keep going, as Robson threads it through. They have the confidence

:42:29.:42:35.

now to go from their 22. It is that man, Cros, once more. He has been so

:42:36.:42:41.

effective this season. We have men the far side, we see football skills

:42:42.:42:48.

from Alexandre Roumat. It is a long stretch for Wales back right into

:42:49.:42:57.

that far corner. Great interlinking, and Geoffrey Cros has proved his

:42:58.:43:00.

worth this evening. Tier there was not an awful lot we can say, but we

:43:01.:43:04.

have to give this French team credit, they are playing some

:43:05.:43:08.

lovely, lovely rugby so far this evening. They are taking every

:43:09.:43:11.

opportunity that they have got an air getting their hands on the board

:43:12.:43:14.

and their dangerous runners are looking to get involved with the

:43:15.:43:20.

game. Editing is coming for them. Roumat ran a beautiful little left

:43:21.:43:23.

footed kick through but it is all France at the moment. It has gone

:43:24.:43:29.

forward, so a rare mistake from the French team.

:43:30.:43:41.

It has been an impressive effort from the French 15. Many individuals

:43:42.:43:49.

creating an impression. None more so than the scrum-half who has gone off

:43:50.:43:58.

now, Couilloud. After Retiere is on in place of Baptiste Couilloud and

:43:59.:44:03.

he was the orchestrator, he was the glue that held it together. Retiere

:44:04.:44:09.

started the first two games for France in the Six Nations and he is

:44:10.:44:14.

as equally talented player, and as we saw, he picked up the loose ball

:44:15.:44:17.

on the turn and he was the one in the shape of the tea previous line

:44:18.:44:22.

break. What Wales have to do now is they need a leader or two to step

:44:23.:44:26.

forward and make a stamp on this game. The 15 boys cannot go into

:44:27.:44:33.

their shells, they France hoping to add to their five

:44:34.:44:58.

tries, and 13 minutes to do so. Plenty of shoving in the line-up but

:44:59.:45:01.

again they have given away a penalty. They just want to gain a

:45:02.:45:15.

bit of respectability in this final 13 minutes. If they could make a few

:45:16.:45:23.

tries. Right definitely now, and Arwel Robson, Dane Blacker, Ellis

:45:24.:45:27.

Shipp, this is where the basics need to be done first. They need to be

:45:28.:45:30.

done well with a decent cake from Robson and Millichip to get this

:45:31.:45:36.

line-up done. Black at Robson who brings the ball into play. It has

:45:37.:45:46.

just slowed up. It goes down the blindside through Dombrandt. Two men

:45:47.:45:55.

straight there in French colours. There is an advantage for offside in

:45:56.:46:00.

a free play for Wales. Keiran Williams had no way through that

:46:01.:46:06.

time. This is where they will try and up the anti-. Dombrandt wasn't

:46:07.:46:19.

held, good off-load. It is still there for Wales, and though it is

:46:20.:46:22.

gone forward once again and that just sums up the second half. It was

:46:23.:46:28.

the right idea for Wales, they have taught the tempo and try things in

:46:29.:46:31.

the remaining 12 minutes but it is just the off-load. We talked about

:46:32.:46:35.

it and it was one of the first plays the second half. They had to kick

:46:36.:46:39.

the ball through and it was probably a off-load that wasn't bearing that

:46:40.:46:42.

is where they can afford to go through an extra three or four

:46:43.:46:46.

phases to get their backs back on their feet and concentrate on what

:46:47.:46:52.

is happening in front of them. The crowd have enjoyed maximum, the full

:46:53.:46:59.

capacity at the Stade Sapiac in Montauban. Letters had quickly to

:47:00.:47:11.

fill steel with a round-up of the weekends rugby. Plenty of club rugby

:47:12.:47:18.

on this weekend. Pontypridd have beaten Ebbw Vale in Tier one of

:47:19.:47:25.

their Premiership and then tomorrow it is these games. Saint Davids have

:47:26.:47:38.

won a game all season and they have conceded, their points aggregate is

:47:39.:47:42.

-1000 and hopefully they can get their season on track. There is

:47:43.:47:54.

international rugby as well. Ngando are against Sweden. I wonder if they

:47:55.:48:01.

will have their Barman with them! I thought there was going to be a gag

:48:02.:48:05.

in there somewhere. We knew that was coming! It looks as if it is last

:48:06.:48:13.

orders on the Wales under 20 side unfortunately.

:48:14.:48:26.

They have been well and truly second-best in the second half. You

:48:27.:48:34.

have to be impressed with the French 15. Particularly the second half. If

:48:35.:48:38.

they would've played like this against England they would have

:48:39.:48:45.

given them a good old game but there was probably a continuity thing and

:48:46.:48:48.

it has always been the French game. They do it for 40 minutes but he was

:48:49.:48:53.

hoping they don't do it all tomorrow. Victim Care Unit they have

:48:54.:49:00.

a shrewd coach. A chance ever Wales. A heavy tackle on black. Scrum-half

:49:01.:49:13.

on scrum-half. Driven on by Ellis Shipp of the Dragons. The space

:49:14.:49:17.

appears for Jack Pope. They just need something, some divine

:49:18.:49:20.

inspiration. It is not going to come. It has just been mistake after

:49:21.:49:33.

mistake. I think it was Owen Lane that time. France from the Powell --

:49:34.:49:36.

that prowl for more. It has been hard work. They have had

:49:37.:49:58.

to toil in the second half. They have just been hit with wave after

:49:59.:50:05.

wave and blitzed. They are losing the physical battle for meat, with

:50:06.:50:10.

the contact there, whether it be a tackle in the contact area, and that

:50:11.:50:13.

is a prime example there. You can't fault the French commitment. They

:50:14.:50:22.

are a bunch of big guys. Potential foul play here. By number 18, the

:50:23.:50:33.

French number 18, Colombe. It started on the chest for me that

:50:34.:50:38.

one. It was a big hit on Sid Blackmore. He just creeps up. That

:50:39.:50:51.

is the best angle, Mike. It started in the chest, did flip up to the

:50:52.:50:58.

head? No foul play there. Correct. There was no foul play. A big hit in

:50:59.:51:05.

the chest. It was always on the chest, no foul play. I think

:51:06.:51:13.

tomorrow is going to be a different kettle of fish. Wales were superb

:51:14.:51:17.

last weekend against Ireland and we got the victory, but I think it is

:51:18.:51:21.

going to be a tough, tough old game tomorrow. There won't be an awful

:51:22.:51:24.

lot in it. It will come down to very similar to today, you win the

:51:25.:51:28.

physical battle anew with the game. France are a big old bunch of units

:51:29.:51:32.

tomorrow, especially the front Tate. They have a huge pack but Wales have

:51:33.:51:40.

a great record, they have lost against France since the infamous

:51:41.:51:43.

semifinal at Eden Park in the World Cup of 2011. There will be no fears

:51:44.:51:46.

of going to Stade de France tomorrow. Wales could end up as

:51:47.:51:54.

fourth in the rankings, of course, if they win, and if England beat

:51:55.:52:02.

Ireland. Plenty to play for on the final day of the Six Nations season.

:52:03.:52:12.

A harsh lesson here though for the under 20s before they had to Georgia

:52:13.:52:16.

in the June. As long as they learn from it, they will go back and

:52:17.:52:20.

probably knowing a lot of the boys they will look at the game this

:52:21.:52:25.

evening and in the morning and there will be individual as well as team

:52:26.:52:28.

reviews and as long as they are learning are looking to get better

:52:29.:52:30.

and they go back to their regions and help their regions whose and the

:52:31.:52:37.

regions help them improve then I think everyone is on tour winner.

:52:38.:52:40.

The fear is, where do they play after they come out of this age

:52:41.:52:45.

group? That has been a question for the last five or six or seven years.

:52:46.:52:53.

You play under 20s and you have been under relatively successful for the

:52:54.:52:57.

last few years but how many of them will step up to the professional

:52:58.:53:00.

game get regular rugby and what is the answer? I don't think anybody

:53:01.:53:04.

knows at the moment. I thought you are putting yourself forward

:53:05.:53:08.

therefore the job! Driven on by France, and they look menacing

:53:09.:53:16.

driving on. Strip and tackle, he has got it back. They had men and it

:53:17.:53:20.

looks ominous for Wales and it is another try. That was easy for Theo

:53:21.:53:28.

Millet. Wales looked dejected. They go back into the posts and it is six

:53:29.:53:37.

tries for France and a real hard lesson for Wales in the second half.

:53:38.:53:45.

It is just a turnover for Wales that are killing them. 50% of tries these

:53:46.:53:49.

days are scored from either kick and receipt or when you get a turnover

:53:50.:53:54.

in that transition period. It just hasn't worked for Wales tonight,

:53:55.:53:58.

they haven't been able to go through a few phases and hold onto the ball

:53:59.:54:01.

and have a little bit of composure. They have lost the physical battle,

:54:02.:54:05.

as we touched on earlier, they have most definitely come in second-best.

:54:06.:54:12.

Their body language says a lot as they trudge under the posts. It has

:54:13.:54:15.

been a long old second half. N'Tamack tries to add to his 13

:54:16.:54:23.

points. He stretches France to 40. It had to

:54:24.:54:48.

come once more. Again it is just the mission action midfielder and the

:54:49.:54:52.

quick ball and the replacement scrum-half, Retiere, just had his

:54:53.:54:55.

the ball relatively quickly and he shifted it just that one shape out

:54:56.:55:00.

and he spotted the mismatch and it was a right foot sept and he was

:55:01.:55:01.

over the try line. It will be a tough one for the under

:55:02.:55:13.

20 boys to take. They would have come into this with high hopes and

:55:14.:55:16.

expectations after their win over Ireland. How easy will this be,

:55:17.:55:25.

tough looking at the tapes? It will be. You have got to be, you'll have

:55:26.:55:30.

to pick up what you can do better next time what you have done today.

:55:31.:55:35.

They have got to learn and in losses sometimes come great things. Here is

:55:36.:55:41.

hoping that the improvements will be made and it is a cracking experience

:55:42.:55:44.

of the boys to be playing out here in this atmosphere in the south of

:55:45.:55:47.

France and he was hoping they do it a lot more. Seguret is on for a

:55:48.:55:53.

Uberti in the centre, and the French fans are in strong song at

:55:54.:56:11.

Montauban. Retiere out to N'Tamack. They bring the replacement Seguret

:56:12.:56:13.

onto the ball, that is his first touch. They just want to hear that

:56:14.:56:24.

final whistle now, do the Welsh boys. Futurist Theatre they just

:56:25.:56:27.

needed to get their hands on the ball and get a turnover. Somebody

:56:28.:56:34.

needs to step up and make that turnover. At the moment they are

:56:35.:56:38.

just chasing shadows and when shadows around this quickly you will

:56:39.:56:43.

never catch up. They enjoyed some dominance in the first quarter and

:56:44.:56:47.

since then it has all been France. It was a big momentum change when

:56:48.:56:54.

Rhun Williams went off. France had them for two tries. Both losing

:56:55.:57:00.

possession and unfortunately we have seen too much of that happening in

:57:01.:57:05.

the second 40. In the second half they are handling turnovers by Wales

:57:06.:57:10.

and that's up to eight and that is pretty high. The boys have to take a

:57:11.:57:13.

little bit of accountability as they carry the ball into contact. You try

:57:14.:57:17.

to do too much sometimes would you be better off going through the

:57:18.:57:21.

extra phase and setting someone up for the next phase.

:57:22.:57:32.

No doubt we will see a few of these French boys stepping up to the

:57:33.:57:41.

senior side in the next few years. A lot of them are already getting a

:57:42.:57:47.

lot of gametime in the Top 14 and that is something we don't have in

:57:48.:57:51.

Wales. A lot of these boys will still be playing semipro games are

:57:52.:57:54.

getting the odd game in the British and are a cup or the LV end is that

:57:55.:57:59.

what we need to do? They need to be played together regulate and form

:58:00.:58:01.

partnerships again those experiences?

:58:02.:58:14.

Yes, to N'Tamack, he might be one of those players in the future. Retiere

:58:15.:58:28.

is a big man coming onto the ball, France have got options all the

:58:29.:58:34.

time. Not that time though. This might be the final flourish for

:58:35.:58:40.

Wales, to get something out of a very disappointing second half. They

:58:41.:58:44.

need to try and end on a high. That was a great kick for Robson, 40

:58:45.:58:49.

metres. That gives them a line-out six metres from the French try line.

:58:50.:58:55.

They must take their time and have a bitter composure just five or six

:58:56.:58:59.

metres from the French line and hopefully come away with five

:59:00.:59:10.

pointer. A chance to get the last word then.

:59:11.:59:17.

Shane Lewis-Hughes, Black has a little luck. A good hit from

:59:18.:59:26.

Dombrandt. He is driving for the line. A chance here. It must come

:59:27.:59:32.

for Wales, it has in the end. It's far too late, but over goes Robson.

:59:33.:59:42.

Unfortunately it will be too little too late. That was what Wales

:59:43.:59:47.

needed, it was that guy again. I mentioned him a few minutes ago, the

:59:48.:59:51.

two began with God over the gain line five minutes ago. It is the

:59:52.:59:55.

urgency he gives you. He said N'Tamack flying and he committed

:59:56.:59:59.

five players to have to tackle him and that shortens your defensive

:00:00.:00:02.

line and when you are playing the flat to the line, Robson gets over

:00:03.:00:09.

the line but well done to Alex Dombrandt.

:00:10.:00:19.

The clock nears VAT and Robson has a chance to convert. That is right on

:00:20.:00:40.

the money as well from Arwel Robson. Something for those Welsh travelling

:00:41.:00:41.

fans to cheer. It has been a relatively decent

:00:42.:00:51.

campaign for will smack during this campaign but it has not gone to plan

:00:52.:00:57.

the night. Here's hoping that their luck will get better. A second try

:00:58.:01:11.

them for Wales. At the end of the match. France might have one final

:01:12.:01:22.

chance to add to their tally. It will be a try. A little dab through.

:01:23.:01:33.

He was on the same wavelength. They will have a look to see that it went

:01:34.:01:40.

over. If I was a betting man, I would say this was knocked on. Let

:01:41.:01:46.

us have a look. A deft kick by Arthur Retiere. That is no try for

:01:47.:01:58.

me. There is no reason for him not to score. But he may have lost

:01:59.:02:13.

control. Let's have another look. He has lost control of the ball. The

:02:14.:02:24.

try is not awarded but that is the end of the match. A disappointing

:02:25.:02:29.

second half. Wales did well in the first quarter but then came wave

:02:30.:02:40.

after wave of French tries. Six in all, four in the second half. There

:02:41.:02:44.

was only one team in it in that second 40. Unfortunately, it was the

:02:45.:02:52.

team wearing blue as France ran out victors by 40-20.

:02:53.:03:01.

Those 40 points were unanswered from Wales. They had the last words but

:03:02.:03:04.

it started ominously in the second half and it was Quentin Walcker who

:03:05.:03:09.

went over for the first try. Not long after, dirty went over for his

:03:10.:03:16.

and probably the pick of the bunch, this is Geoffrey Cross. The Welsh

:03:17.:03:21.

defence at sixes and sevens there. Not sure what is going on there. In

:03:22.:03:35.

this,. The last French effort was ultimately disallowed but it means

:03:36.:03:39.

Wales, who were hopeful of finishing in second place, but was beyond them

:03:40.:03:44.

because France are in second place, still a long way behind Grand Slam

:03:45.:03:48.

champions England who have a massive 27 points at the top. Wales finished

:03:49.:03:53.

third and the game between Scotland and Italy are still going on. 31-5

:03:54.:03:59.

to Scotland as this big. That was a game of two halves and extremist.

:04:00.:04:05.

France just came out in that second half and blue Wales away. Yes, the

:04:06.:04:09.

yellow card was the catalyst. They grew in confidence from that. The

:04:10.:04:14.

early errors eradicated from the game, got the momentum and got the

:04:15.:04:22.

fried -- crowd involved. They laid the platform and Wales had no answer

:04:23.:04:25.

in the end. Too little, too late unfortunately. We can speak to one

:04:26.:04:32.

of the Welsh players, it is the captain Keiran Williams. Bad luck, a

:04:33.:04:39.

tough night of the bus, but was the difference between the other

:04:40.:04:43.

performances in the Six Nations and the night? I think we just went off

:04:44.:04:46.

script a little bit. Now discredited to France, either they were

:04:47.:04:49.

brilliant but I don't think we were at the races at all. We had a first

:04:50.:04:54.

20 minutes that was good but after that we felt of tackles. From there,

:04:55.:05:01.

we didn't perform good enough. What did you learn from the defeat

:05:02.:05:07.

because you can learn in defeat? Of course. You always learn every

:05:08.:05:12.

single game. They think the last few games, we were brilliant. It is the

:05:13.:05:18.

poisoning -- disappointing the end on such a disappointment but we will

:05:19.:05:22.

regroup and get back to training for the World Cup. If one a lot of

:05:23.:05:27.

friends on the campaign, not least by the brand of rugby you been

:05:28.:05:31.

playing, how proud you of that? Absolutely. I am disappointed we

:05:32.:05:35.

didn't implement that the night but I think we will go by, churning

:05:36.:05:38.

field and work on that and see where we went wrong and that is right for

:05:39.:05:42.

the World Cup. Well done on your own performance. Very magnanimous in

:05:43.:05:50.

defeat but we talked about it at half-time, the set piece that laid

:05:51.:05:53.

the platform but that French revival in the second half and the signs

:05:54.:05:57.

were there from the first try. They turned the screw on Wales is, it

:05:58.:06:01.

today at the office for the forwards. They were a powerful pack.

:06:02.:06:07.

We can do that I going forward and this is the position where Rhys

:06:08.:06:14.

Carre got into position and a lot of bit of football and egos over. They

:06:15.:06:20.

really put that pressure three most of the game and it just start will

:06:21.:06:24.

smack of so much ball that they were just defending. You get a lot of

:06:25.:06:28.

penalties away through frustration because they didn't see the ball.

:06:29.:06:32.

The forwards did their job and the well backs too. Lots of options and

:06:33.:06:37.

enter my caddie real cruising the second half. He looked to be

:06:38.:06:42.

enjoying it. The Wales line has been shortened. What you need to do is

:06:43.:06:46.

assess and read and slipped off these three forwards. They're just

:06:47.:06:51.

too short and Williams is left with three. The next try was first phase

:06:52.:06:56.

and you have to say, there's a lot of dummy runners. Not exactly in the

:06:57.:07:02.

right place. But how many people, too upfront, a lot of bodies for

:07:03.:07:06.

Wales John Charles Guy get distracted with but the one person

:07:07.:07:13.

who gets distracted is Ryan Conbeer. Rhun Williams has the last man but

:07:14.:07:17.

when you are a static in a game like that, you got no chance and that guy

:07:18.:07:20.

had a good game along with Ntamack in the second half. Only one team in

:07:21.:07:27.

the second half, let's hope it's not uncommon for tomorrow in Paris. We

:07:28.:07:30.

have little time left, who is going to win? Wales. Yes, why not? Lions

:07:31.:07:39.

places at stake. To Wales in the studio. That's all we have time for

:07:40.:07:44.

on Scrum V tonight. Wales have not lost to France since that World Cup

:07:45.:07:50.

final in 2011 so the omens are good. The former book is good, so, too is

:07:51.:07:56.

history. Wales Mac women are also playing tomorrow, good luck to them

:07:57.:07:58.

and our senior side as well. Full coverage on the BBC and Scrum V on

:07:59.:08:06.

Sunday is at 6pm. We will see you then, have a good again.

:08:07.:08:16.

What a score! On the outside. Another score.

:08:17.:08:32.

They will never believe it. Again, he could go on the way. It is a

:08:33.:08:36.

victory. He is galloping over. He has support

:08:37.:08:48.

aside. On his own. Shane Williams is going to get it.

:08:49.:08:57.

Will he scored? He does. George A thrilling Six Nations

:08:58.:09:01.

concludes across the BBC... My back is absolutely killing me.

:09:02.:09:07.

There is a secret for your back. Rhod Gilbert's enrolled

:09:08.:09:20.

in building school. That's really good

:09:21.:09:23.

for the first attempt. Not going to cry, are you?

:09:24.:09:26.

Oh...I'm welling up. But will he survive on

:09:27.:09:29.

a real building site? Do you kick people off

:09:30.:09:32.

pretty quickly if they're not up to scratch?

:09:33.:09:33.

Er, yes, we do, yeah. Pressure's on.

:09:34.:09:36.

Right, get the bucket. My back is absolutely killing me.

:09:37.:09:38.

There is a secret for your back. Yeah? Yeah.

:09:39.:09:41.

Just man up and get on with it. This is my life, my career!

:09:42.:09:51.

I did not frame him.
