Wales confident following win over Argentina in Cardiff

first_imgSunday Aug 21, 2011 Wales confident following win over Argentina in Cardiff Wales head into the Rugby World Cup on a high following their gritty 28-13 win over a strong Argentina side at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.In the first half it looked as though the home side were in for a tough time of it, but two quick tries in the space of a few minutes turned things around, giving them a fairly comfortable 14-3 lead at half time.Andy Powell and Alun Wyn Jones were the first half try scorers, before wing George North crossed in the second period to put the game out of reach, satisfying coach Warren Gatland.“I am pleased with the result, but it was tough because we made nine changes. Its easy to underestimate a side like Argentina, to write them off.” said Gatland.“It was a tough opening period but we took our two opportunities very well. I thought some of the footwork from George North for the second try and the pass for Alun Wyn was excellent he put in a tremendous performance. Thats the way games go at times, you just have to take your opportunities,” he added.On the injury front, Hooker Richard Hibbard looks to be yet another casualty after he reportedly suffered ankle ligament damage. He is the second Welsh hooker to be ruled out of the tournament, following Matthew Rees’ unavailability due to a serious neck injury.On a positive note, exciting winger Leigh Halfpenny came through unscathed and looks as though he will be fully fit for his first ever world cup.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
