France surely have to be favourites? OK they lost to a very good performance from England, but then you look at the Wales games. 2 wins where the opposition was playing with 14 men for significant periods. 1 where, in the words of Ben Kayser, the ref pulled on his Welsh jersey, and a good win against Italy, but then everyone gets a good win against Italy.

So Wales will need to be at their best

I take you point, but I'd see a French win as karma, considering Wales are only in this position through red cards and refs decisions.

Though I'd agree it was a totally unfair situation on Scotland. I can't help but think that the extra weeks off hurt Scotland, and they could have beaten Ireland without it.

...ugly wins and suspicious refereeing still doesn't mean that Wales are undeserving of a Grand Slam or the victories they've enjoyed to date. But the best reason for a Welsh victory on Saturday is simply because the English are always baffled when they lose, irrespective of how sh*te they are. They'll still be unbelieving as Alun Wyn Jones holds up the trophy. A Welshwoman in England. hahahaha Removed

Alun Wyn Jones can hardly hold up his own Head let alone a trophy.

We except we have been rubbish this 6 nations, yet Wales can't except they have been fortunate through decisions that could have or should have gone either way.

If the referee is good then France win

Most people agree that this would not count as a true grand slam if Wales win - as they only beat England as a result of some terrible refereeing errors and they didn’t deserve to beat either Scotland or Ireland.

If Wales win the Grand Slam it will be a non-vintage 6 nations, France will be suffering from covid worries and the Slam will be built on sand.
If Wales lose, then the French team have proven all along what the rugby media know for sure. France are better than Wales but England simply blipped against Scotland and Wales, and the greats of world rugby are back.

Ever have the media been so :)

You never beat England you just score more points than them. Remember 2013 and the 30-3 gubbing it was all Steve Walsh’s fault then. There have been countless examples of them whinging when they lose but you never hear a peep about any controversy when they win. Remember Anscombes try in 2018 now that was a disgrace but we were told to be quiet and suck it up. What goes around comes around haha
