The Welsh Rugby Union have been slammed for the 10,000 empty seats at the Principality Stadium for their clash with Wales in Cardiff.
At it stands, the attendance is looking at being just over 60,000 for the clash with the Grand Slam-chasing French.
That would be the lowest crowd for a Six Nations game against Les Bleus since the Principality Stadium was built in 1999.
Two years ago, the attendance for the fixture was 73,931, while in 2018 it was 74,169. Those were both Saturday games.
The social reaction clearly shows fans were not impressed.
