The Autumn Internationals are now in full swing, meaning November is truly upon us and 2017 is coming to an end. With Wales, Scotland, England and Ireland all competing against the likes of Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, it’s clear to see why the matches attract so much attention. The Welsh Rugby Shirts are out and with big games up ahead, here is an overview of the story so far.

Wales v Australia

This game saw Wales off to a rocky start with Australia taking the win. A final score was achieved of 21-29 with tries scored by Steffan Evans and Hallam Amos and both a penalty and conversion by Leigh Halfpenny. The opposition saw tries from Tatafu Polota-Nau, Adam Coleman, Michael Hooper and Kurtley Beale, a conversion from Bernard Foley and a penalty from Reece Hodge.

A notable moment in the Welsh attack was when Steffan Evans scored his impressive try. Originally from Llanelli, his career has gone from strength to strength, he was also called up for the 2017 Six Nations squad which is a massive achievement. Hallam Amos who is currently studying medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine came on as a substitute for Evans and sent the crowd wild when he scored his try.

Wales v Georgia

This game saw the boys pick up and take the game 13-6. Tries were scored again by Hallam Amos with a conversion and penalty from Rhys Priestland. Coming from Carmarthen, Priestland joined the scarlets at the young age of 18 before scoring his first try for Wales in 2011. Georgia left with two penalties from Soso Matiashvili, a disappointing finish for the team.

Wales were bright and although it was a close call, they pushed through and took the victory. Their speed and fast tempo had Georgia moving all around the field and resulted in quick success.

With Wales v. South Africa coming up on December 2nd, there is much more excitement to come.
