France’s Six Nations got off to the perfect start on Friday evening, when they took a 16-0 lead into half-time against Wales in their Paris opener.
But in typical French fashion, Les Blues completely capitulated in the second-half, conceding 24 points to gift Wales a massive win at the Stade de France.
Two of the Welsh’s tries came from absolute howlers by France – a slip from Yoann Huget and a crazy skip pass from lock Sébastien Vahaamahina, with George North the beneficiary on both occasions.
And to make matters worse, Vahaamahina has made an absolutely crazy revelation that shows just about much of a shambles French rugby is at the moment.
The lock told Midi Olympique after the game that he was captain at the time he threw that pass, completely unbeknownst to himself, taking over from Guilhem Guirado who was substituted.
“I did not even know I was a captain,” said Vahaamahina.
“It was the referee, Wayne Barnes, who came to see me on a penalty to ask me my choice. I told him to address the captain. He said it was me.
“The staff did not warn me.”
How crazy is that? What an absolute shambles.
