Product Description

Wales v France in the 3rd round of the Guinness Six Nations will be the first time the two sides have met since their nail biting Quarter Final match in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Despite an underwhelming performance Wales narrowly won 20-19 after a moment of madness saw French lock Sebastien Vahaamahina red carded for an elbow to the face on Wales back row Aaron Wainwright. Vahaamahina admitted he “lost control” in the incident, and retired from international rugby the day after the match.

Centre Jonathan Davies suffered a knee injury in Wales’ pool win over Fiji, meaning he then missed the final Pool game against Uruguay, before being named in the side to face France in the quarter-finals. However, he then aggravated his injury in the captain’s run and Owen Watkin was promoted from the bench to start in his place. A last gasp Ross Moriarty try which some would argue was controversial due to a dubious pass, gave the Welsh an undeserved one point victory over the forlorn French.

Wales v France – on the opening night of the Guinness Six Nations 2019, Les Bleus opened up a 16-0 half-time lead, only for Wales to roar back and pull off a record comeback with a 19-24 win.

That result prompted Warren Gatland to say that his team had forgotten how to lose, and in his defence, they are now on a run of 19 successive wins outside warm-up matches. It remains to be seen how they get on in their Rugby World Cup Semi-Final v the Springboks.

The Principality Stadium is the national Stadium, more commonly known as the Millennium Stadium. With a total seating capacity of 74,500 it’s the 3rd largest stadium in the Six Nations Championship behind the Stade de France and Twickenham. It’s also the second largest stadium in the world with a fully retractable roof and was the second stadium in Europe to have this feature.
