The 1966 Five Nations final came down to the final kick of the final match and Wales found a way to win when France’s Pierre Lacaze penalty went wide to help the home side to a 9-8 win in the a match and take the Five Nations title on this day in rugby history.
Wales was made to fight for the dual victory. They were down 6-8 at the break and a great 70 yard run by Stuart J Watkins for the lone Welsh try 15 minutes from time set up the celebrations.

Lacaze was the focus of the 60,000 fans as he lined up his penalty from just inside the touchline on the final play but his kick went just wide of the posts.
