You are missing a generation and the whole country is being depopulated. The orphan of Dan Biggar or Leigh Halfpenny, who ended their international careers after the World Cup, Jac Morgan, knee surgery and Louis Rees-Zammit, who succumbed to the siren call of the NFL, Leek’s and World Cup as unfortunate as disappointing. Men didn’t need Gregor Townsend only ten minutes to break. First a penalty from Finn Russell, then a try from Pierre Schoeman, which was confirmed by Ben O’Keeffe after watching the video. Sluggish in their attacking phases and outgunned in all areas of the game, the Welsh were running up against the defensive rampart the Scots had built. In contrast, the visitors look inspired. After a stupid mistake by Josh Adams, who came to collect the ball out of bounds after 50-22 Finn Russell, Finn Russell was able to get another three points. The Scotland opener then launched a double try which allowed Duhan van der Merwe to score the Scots’ second try. At the break, the score was clear: 0:20.
Wales are waking up and missing out on a historic comeback!

Sam Costelow, out with injury. It was on a breakaway set up by George Turner that James Botham scored the first Welsh try. With the Scottish hooker temporarily ruled out, the Leek XV began to step up and frustrate a Scotland team that was a shadow of what it had been in the first half. Within twelve minutes, Warren Gatland’s men put a biting 19-0 on their opponents thanks to two additional tries from Rio Dyer and Aaron Wainwright and even allowed themselves to believe in a historic comeback, following a long-range effort from Alex Mann. minutes from the time Sione Tuipulotou was put in the fridge after a series of fouls from the Scots, allowing the Welsh to win an attacking bonus that was unimaginable in the first period and which stretched their arms to the opposition, as well as a defensive bonus. which also seemed unattainable.
