The wing wonder's offload to Anton Lienert-Brown had to be seen to be believed, through a gap that simply wasn't there. Then minutes later, he read a clumsy pass from Dan Biggar to put the double world champions out of sight. But after two tries from Weisake Naholo, the stage was set for another Kiwi win on Taffside, as they have done in every meeting since Naholo's first came from nothing, Stef Evans missed a tackle just over half way that left Aaron Smith with a step inside, and a sublime pass to Naholo on the right.

Wales has accorded both of these matches 'test' status but neither game is considered to be an official test by New Zealand.
