But Wales steadily worked their way back into the match. By half-time, they led 13-9. With a try from JJ Williams. And three penalties. Two from Phil Bennett. Then a long-range effort from Allan Martin. Plus two more penalties from Steve Fenwick, that gave Wales what looked like a decisive 19-9 lead.
But substitute, Jean-Michel Aguirre injected some spark into their backline. In the 57th minute wing, Jean-Luc Averous was awarded a try. And France was back within a converted try at 19-13. In the final stages, Jean-Francois Gourdon charged down the touchline. But, a last-ditch tackle from JPR Williams saved the day for Wales. The weight of the tackle knocked the ball from his grasp.
