Wales’ Autumn International test series got off to a disappointing start last weekend as Wayne Pivac’s side went down 55-23 in a resounding defeat to the All Blacks.
That was the first of four matches that Wales will play during the international window and they are back in action again this Saturday as Argentina visit the Principality Stadium. Los Pumas come into the match on a high having recorded a fantastic 30-29 win over England at Twickenham last weekend.
