Anyway, that's all from us for the Six Nations for 2018. See you again soon!

France, despite their fourth place finish, have also exceeded expectations over the last six weeks. Yes, they may have lost three, but they were a kick away from winning two of those. In fact, Ireland aside, I think it's fair to say that they were the only team that weren't convincingly beaten at all. Which is interesting.

Here it is then, the final six nations table. Wales have exceeded expectations with a second place finish. When was the last time England finished fifth?! Or that the two-time defending champions finished fifth?!

A rather anti-climactic end to what has been an entertaining, exciting tournament. Still, a win is a win I guess.

I think the only way that match could have been closer, or stranger, would be if it had lasted 100 minutes again.

Trinh-Duc is being, rather cruelly, referred to as Wales's second best player today. He did have an absolute shocker, at fault for the Welsh try, kicking a penalty dead from halfway, a bizzarre forward pass, and an easy penalty miss that would have given his team the lead.

"We tried to limit the errors and keep hold of the ball" says the Welsh captain. Not sure how successful you were with that, Alun, but you got away with it.

I have no idea how Wales held on to win that. They hardly seemed to have the ball for the entirety of the second half.

Ball is hoofed out, and it's full time!
