I was really happy to see Wales win the RBS 6 Nations tournament and not only did they fully deserve to win it but in doing so they also gave a huge breath of fresh air to world rugby by emerging as a new power.
I was really impressed with the way they played and it gave me enormous pleasure. It reminded me of the 1970s and they have revolutionised their game and given all of us a lift.
They are deserved winners.
As for France, well they could have been champions had it not been for 10 minutes where they did not concentrate properly against the Welsh.
In the end, the destiny of the title was decided in 10 minutes and if they had not dropped their guard then the Grand Slam would have been theirs.
Overall though there are lots of positives to take out of the tournament for us.
We tried out many young players and even if they did not win the tournament they had many moments of inspiration, and with the World Cup coming up in two years we have plenty of reasons to be optimistic for the future.
What was really extraordinary was the way that players kept pulling out but then the players we brought in to replace them all rose to the challenge.
For instance, David Marty came in for Benoit Baby who had done well himself and Julien Laharrague made a big impact as well when he came into the side - they showed the real spirit of rugby.
The only thing they have to learn is that rugby is a game of 80 minutes and you can't just play well for 40 minutes as we did against Wales and then drop your guard.
But in the long term that is not something we should worry about too much because it is a learning process.
