Well, the weekend is here finally and we (Wales) came up just short against South Africa at the Milliennium Stadium with the world champions claiming a hard-fought 20-15 win.

The Springboks had opened up a commanding 20-3 lead early in the second half as Jean de Villiers coasted over following an interception to add to Adrian Jacobs' first-half try.

However, our boys roused themselves and four successful penalties from James Hook - we love this guy- brought them right back into the contest ensuring a grandstand finish in Cardiff.

But South Africa stood firm to see out the match and in the process secured a tenth consecutive win over us. Hats off to our boys for an entertaining game.
