MapWales 81 - Namibia 7 - Match Report
Well, Wales gained the decisive result that they needed and there were strong performances from the young players in the Welsh team. George North, even though he only came on in the second half, made a huge impact. Just give him the ball! And the try by Gethin Jenkins was a classic, bursting through just like a three-quarter! (It even raised a laugh from Warren Gatland, which does not happen often.)
Now it remains for Wales to impose themselves on Fiji next Sunday in Hamilton. Fiji have been disappointing so far in this tournament, nothing like the impact they made in 2007, so lets hope there are no banana skins waiting for Wales this time.
