Wales back in the running

Updated: February 22, 2014


Wales bounced back from their thrashing at the hands of the Irish 2 weeks ago with a dominant 27-6 victory over a shapeless France to keep their hopes alive of securing a history making third consecutive Six Nations crown.

The Millennium stadium is always jammed with pride and passion and with some of the aging  Welsh team playing under a Gatland threat that a loss could open the door for some younger contenders, Sam Warburton’s troops delivered a superb performance out playing the French in all departments.

Tries in the first half by George North, his 16th International try in 38 matches, another by the superb Warburton late in the second and 17 points from the dependable boot of Halfpenny giving Wales the win.

Wales, France and Ireland sit top of thee Championship table with the Irish set to take on England today in a Triple Crown clash.

Scotland face Italy in Rome for the potential wooden spoon.
