You need a crowd in the first place to make the noise!

+1, watching some of the Welsh region games this season on the box all I can see is empty seats. It's like watching Edinburgh at Murrayfield and this is top end of the table games that should be getting a full house. When was the last full house at a regions game?

Very well respected in Ireland though, part of the problem in Wales is anyone can get a ticket these days and they do oh how they do.

The worst thing you can do for french kicker is keep silent.
There's always noise one way or another, ... continuous clapping for the home kicker and raucous whatever
for the opponent variety :kermit:

There are pleas to change it for foreign teams but oft ignored

I was going to say tel the French have a party for every kick, personally I think its fuss over nothing, you never hear players complain only fans with keyboards

Yep, right up to the point where it is an important kick against their team.

I think the larger crowds for a regional game in Wales would have have been a boxing day / or day after boxing day derby, unless there were any Magners / Pro 12 Finals that were played in Wales?

Thinking on this, When a player takes a crushal (Jiffyspeak) drop goal on the field there is uproar and he does not seem affected. You are probably right.
