Dan Biggar added : "If we score and win 14-13 this question does not probably get asked," "It all depends on big moments. We had enough opportunities to win that game and get the job done. "We were attacking against a very good defensive team and coach on the opposite side. "There were some moments we could have done a little bit better on and we need to develop our finishing. "But you saw real attacking intent the way we played the game [against England] at Twickenham. "Tonight was an arm wrestle, a bit of a slug fest. If you come out on the right side of it, then it's pleasing and positive. "If you don't then it's disappointing and you look at areas we could have done better" External link

"They're not going to dish too much up for you to feast on. It's about being disciplined ourselves, matching them physically and starting the game well.

"But there's no doubt the French game was the best we played as a team and we ended up on the losing side. "We took the game to France and made it clear we weren't just going to absorb what they were going to throw at us. "It is difficult with the world-class players France have got. You're not going to stop them scoring 20-plus points because of the talent and power they have. "So we knew that we were going to have to score 20-plus points to be in with a shout.

"We made a decision that night we weren't going to go away and let it slip, we decided we wanted to dig in as much as we could and get a huge win. "We had to deal with a lot of injuries that evening as well. I ended up playing the last 15-20 minutes at full-back and Lloyd Williams had to come onto the wing, so we had to shuffle about a bit as well. "It's crazy it was seven years ago now, it was just a brilliant evening.

Dan Biggar said : "We started okay against Scotland, but in Ireland we were well off the pace," "We spoke after our training session on Thursday and said the biggest difference for us, in the Scotland week to the Ireland week, was our emotional levels.

"We can't put our finger on why we didn't get up there for Ireland, but we said we can't just have that in the Principality Stadium. "We need to make sure, when we go away to tough places like the Aviva Stadium or Twickenham, we start well. "The last couple of times we have been up to Twickenham we have been behind on the scoreboard early and it's such a difficult task then.

Dan Biggar said : “It proved to be the right decision,” “What it enabled us to do in the last 10 minutes was play without the ball. If you’re chasing the game or didn’t quite get what you wanted, then you force something and give up a cheap turnover or a breakdown penalty and all of a sudden you have to chase the game again. So it enabled us to play a territory-based game rather than a possession game, which suited us” External link
