Final whistle fight after dramatic win by the Welsh under 20's

Final whistle fight after dramatic win by the Welsh under 20's

In the IRB Junior World Championships in Swansea, Wales, on saturday, the host nation scored a dramatic injury time try to break French hearts and put themselves through to the Semi Finals, but the victory was marred by a mass brawl after the final whistle.

France had led 19-9 before Wales delighted the crowd with a rousing fightback.

First came a penalty try awarded by Australian referee James Leckie as Wales piled pressure on the French defence, then late into injury time, an unusual six minutes over normal time, the young Welshmen swung the ball wide where players queued up to score with Leigh Halfpenny touching down for the most remarkable on endings to a game.

The final whistle blew and Wales rejoiced, but what was to follow was an unsightly scrap that I can only think was sparked by the frustrations with the ref. One thing more bizarre than the long period of added time, was the manner in which the Welsh captain was pulled away from the interview by an IRB official mid sentence. Possibly to prevent the likelihood of further altercations.

NOTE: We have the long version of the video up again.
