HEARTBREAK: Wales denied Six Nations Grand Slam by last-gasp France winner

 

Brice Dulin's injury-time try broke Welsh hearts as France won 32-30 in Wales' last game of the 2021 Six Nations.

The Grand Slam was so close for Wayne Pivac's side but it was pulled away at the death by the French.

Wales couldn't hold on to a 10-point lead late on and now must rely on Scotland to hand them the Six Nations trophy.

France and Scotland were due to play in February, but a Covid-19 outbreak in the French camp delayed the fixture.

In order to win it all, France must beat Scotland by more than 20 points and claim a bonus point.

Many had written Wales off under Pivac who won just three of his first 10 games in charge.

It's been an outstanding turnaround from the Dragons this year with many players now looking ahead to the Lions tour.

 

Online abuse

 

Unfortunately, though, some of the Wales players were abused online after the defeat.

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) called for the abuse to end in a statement they posted.

The statement said: "The players are proud to represent their country and their jersey. The abuse players are receiving has to stop.

"In order to help drive the call for change, the players want to highlight the amount of abuse and bile that circulates on social media platforms."

It's all eyes on France now as Wales await their Six Nations fate.
