Personally I thought it was great theatre and I was gripped. Barnes did brilliantly IMO although I would question why he didn't stop the clock while Wales had a man in the bin and time was being wasted.
Welsh players were not back 10. Surely a try would have been scored without their tackles/blocks? I have only seen it as it happened so could be wrong.

Didn't see the game and am confused as to who was cheating? The BBC interview with AWJ suggest France, yet most of the comments say Wales? Was it as bad from both teams?

The game then carried on for a further 21 minutes while Wales gave away a succession of penalties so the game couldn't end. France finally scored after 100 minutes.
I'd have more sympathy for the Welsh if half their team didn't spend half the game flapping their arms like seagulls at the referee. Biggar and Davies the worst offenders.
