I'm nervous that this will be a slapping. I'll have it on in the office until it gets embarrassing.

Good try by Wales, not sure if they will be able to turn the tide though.

Wales actually playing some nice running rugby now that the pressure is off. I'm not saying we should have played an open game last week, but there were opportunities where we could have taken a few more risks than we did.

Gatland has done an amazing job with Wales and we've had some great memories over the last 12 years, but I'm hoping Pivac can implement a more attacking style akin to the Scarlets.

Big blow there, just when it felt like Wales could push this closer.

Oof, and again. :dread:

Wales need to do something in the second half here but it's going to be an incredible challenge now.

Well done to the All Blacks, Wales gave a spirited performance but it was only ever going one way really.

For a third place play off it was pretty entertaining to be fair!

Much better rugby than we saw last weekend at last, even if the scoreboard looked worse.

Shame this is Gatland's last game, but yeah, he's done amazing things for Welsh Rugby over the years, and let's hope it stays on the up.

Yeah shame Gatland went out on a loss but you can't really fault his time with Wales (or the Lions for that matter).

Think this means that New Zealand are the only team his Wales have played but never beaten though which is a shame.

Wales have only beaten New Zealand three times: 1905, 1935 and 1953.


Even the Scarlets have beaten New Zealand more recently than Wales (1972).

3 wins is better than Ireland (2) and Scotland (0) so it could be worse!
