Halfpenny prepared for another big kick against France

Leigh Halfpenny says he's "moved on" from the disappointment of missing a decisive penalty in Wales' World Cup semi-final defeat to France, and is ready to kick his side to Grand Slam glory against the same opponents on Saturday.

The 23-year-old Cardiff Blues man has enjoyed great success since become Wales' principal goal kicker for the Six Nations. His late penalty fell agonisingly short as Warren Gatland's men lost 9-8 to France in October.

I would wonder if there was anything I could have done to get the ball over, I went through it every single day, but that has gone now. I have moved on from that. The practice I have done since that moment means going into this game I am pleased with where I am at. I just try to imagine I am on the field in Gorseinon with just me, the ball and the posts.
