Saturday 15 October 2011: gutted
They must be utterly heartbroken. PROUD as punch, mind.
it's not so much the decision to send the Welsh captain off that is getting me so vexed (it not being a red card offence is a no brainer, really), it's more down to the fact that the complete dullard of a ref appeared so oblivious to so many of the MANY French off-sides which were happening right under his bluddy nose. Good grief.
Wales played their hearts out and appeared to be the only team on the pitch who actually wanted to be there, but being a man down for 3/4 of the game was just too much for them (especially with ANIMAL being forced off due to injury in the first half too). Photo was taken just when we thought Halfpenny's superb kick had gone over in the dying minutes. But it didn't, instead just skimming under - oh if you only knew how different this scene looked a few microseconds later :(
