France v Wales

Plus George North's alleged love bite. TBH there was so much going on with injured replacements and then the fourth official appearing to intervene then backing off. WB looked positively relieved when Chouly eventually crossed over, having held out for the penalty try by at least 10 minutes. Wales should have been down to 13 long before.

Was Moriarty taken off for a HIA or was he substituted? If the latter how was he allowed back on? Certainly have to query how Slimani was allowed back as Antoine did not look to be needing a HIA but Wayne could not overrule the French doctor!

Moriarty was a blood replacement for Baldwin who had gone into the back row as Ball had gone off injured and no other replacements were left.

Howley really messed up today and I can't imagine him getting the gig full time now.

The commentators suggested Moriarty was injured. That may not be the case but it did appear to be. He was then sent back on. If, and I say IF, he is now injured I think some serious questions have to be asked. Wales have shown over the past couple of years that they don't place player safety high on the agenda.

Supposedly a stinger from which he quickly recovered

Any idea who actually scored the French try at the end.? Different reports state Chat, Maestri or Chouly

I thought the only reasons a player can come back on are:-
After passing a HIA successfully
Following a blood injury
A front row replacement where needed to enable competitive scrums.

Still unsure that Moriarty should have come back at the end. If went off for a stinger then surely that does not qualify.

Thought Moriarty had a good game overall and he is only Glos player with an outside chance of going with Lions in my view.

I think Moriarty will go on lions tour. His versatility across the back row will help his case.

That's karma - Wales persist about having the roof closed so their game and tactics can benefit from drier conditions, then when they get their way, they then proceed to heavily water the pitch prior to the Ireland match.
