For the third time in the history of the Rugby World Cup, France is off to the final.
But they’ll want a different result this time around, after losing 29-9 to New Zealand in Auckland in 1987 and then 35-12 to Australia in Cardiff, Wales in 1999.
On Saturday, France got three penalty kicks from Morgan Parra in a 9-8 victory over Wales in the semi-finals of the tournament, currently taking place in New Zealand.
The turning point of the match came early in the game as Welsh captain Sam Warburton literally picked up French winger Vincent Clerc and then dropped him dangerously to the ground.
But at the end of the day, Wales had their opportunities but simply failed to capitalize. They forced 11 handling errors by the French and failed to convert six penalty kicks.
The other semi-final will go Sunday morning, as world powerhouses Australia and New Zealand will meet up against each other. The winner will play France in the final on October 23 in Auckland.
