Wales eke out win against Samoa

Wales eke out win against Samoa”

However, Sam Davies kicked three straight penalties to leave the Welsh side only behind 10-9 at the halftime break.

The Pacific Islanders were thrashed 78-0 by New Zealand a week ago, but led for much of a match played in testing conditions, with a converted Alapati Leiua try and a Tusi Pisi penalty putting them 10-0 up early on. Pisi's kick was charged down by Aaron Shingler and Wales struck.

Wing Evans then ran in his first global try two minutes after the restart before Manu Leiataua's score put Samoa back ahead, to the delight of the home fans.

Wales was severely depleted by the loss of more than 15 players to the British and Irish Lions and had 12 uncapped players in its squad for its Pacific tour. "Tonga in Auckland was tough and you cant underestimate the situation we were in here in Samoa".

"We've had a little bit of an illness in the camp and the players could have used that but they dug in so deep", said McBryde. "It was a bit of an arm-wrestle but to come through in the last 10 minutes showed a lot of grit from the new lads".

"We knew they would be physical and get stronger, and they did that".

Samoa's Piula Fa'asalele and Wales Steffan Evans battle for a loose ball.

Samoa held the early advantage in the match when it rocked Wales with Leiua's try.

The second period started as it had ended for the Samoa fly-half.

Ellis Jenkins hacked the ball on and then front row forwards Ryan Elias and Dillon Lewis combined to send Evans over the line. After prop Viliami Afatia carried the ball on, Samoa quickly recycled possession and Fotuali'i picked out Leiataua, who scored.

Errors mounted as players exhausted on the muddy field but Wales patiently worked the ball up the middle for 12 phases before shifting it wide for Evans to dot down his second in the corner. On the last phase they pierced the gain line and four quick passes put Evans in an overlap near the left-hand touch. Im just so pleased for the players.”.
