    Looked like an ideal warm-up game for Wales, and the test this Saturday could be good one. It's a quality Welsh backline, and they could well cause problems against some unfamiliar combinations on the Bok side. I don't think the Bokke will be complacent, but the pack is going have to take control of this game otherwise I might spend a couple of hours yelling at the tv.

    Ideally Wales would have probably wanted a slightly sterner test than the Kings. This poor team just bleeds talent to the Super15 franchises - hardly any big names left. 34-12 is actually a pretty decent result for them, all things considered. Durban should be a cracking test though.

    Matthew Morgan is magic, I can't believe the Ospreys let him go. Now he's going to be playing division 1 rugby for Bristol.
