Great game of rugger. Well played both teams but especially Portugal when you consider they do not have one player in premium franchise leagues. They were by far the more enterprising and better coached side. The try they scored was sublime in it's simplicity and the Welsh pack were just playing by rote and got caught out. They were really entertaining.
