LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A loss, but in a contemporary styleAnother defeat to the Wallabies. Which for some will be all that matters. And they may be right when you consider that Wales haven’t beaten Australia since 2008 – a sleight on an otherwise impressive Northern Hemisphere CV for Warren Gatland. However, this was a genuinely different Wales, a modern Wales. A Wales that was able to move the ball through the centres with a fluidity unseen since Gatland and Rob Howley took charge. Gone were the muscular, short carries in midfield from the Welsh 12, instead replaced by passing, and slick passing at that.Baller: Ken Owens and the Welsh forwards handled like KiwisThis new approach, whilst evident in the backs, was more impressive in the forwards with Jake Ball and Rob Evans in particular executing rapid handling more reminiscent of a Super Rugby hooker and lock. You just need to look at Tevita Kuridrani’s defensive stats to see why Wales need to persevere with a more unpredictable approach to midfield play. The Wallaby 13 missed five tackles from 12, which is almost unheard of from a centre in test rugby – particularly from a player of Kuridrani’s standing. It will require patience from Welsh supporters with regards to this new style in the build up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup. It takes an age to untangle headphones that have only been in your pocket for just three minutes, Wales’ headphones have been in their pocket for at least three years longer than they should have. Rob Evans – a kiwi in disguiseWelsh rugby may have selected the impressive Hadleigh Parkes in the current Welsh squad, but Rob Evans may be the most ‘Kiwi’ member of the squad. Evans executed 12 passes during his impressive stint – more than either Leigh Halfpenny, Liam Williams, Jon Davies, Steff Evans or Owen Williams. It was a remarkable exemplar of modern prop play. Whilst many were looking to the unusually below par Taulupe Faletau to link the forwards and backs, it was Evans who on numerous occasions flicked passes through the midfield and allowed Wales to move the ball beyond the defensive ‘hinge’ and into the space in the wide channels.Marked man: Rob Evans passed more than any Welsh player other than the halfbacksBut Evans isn’t a player who shines in the loose, whilst neglecting the tight. His scrummaging was solid and his tackle count was second only to Josh Navidi. Wales may have had issues with dodgy passports in the past, but Evans definitely requires a second look. He may profess to hail from Haverfordwest, but he plays like he was born in Wellington.Owen Williams slams the door shutOwen Williams not only shut down the 12 channel, but also slammed the door on the notion that Welsh inside centres need to be 12 feet tall and 120 stone to tackle effectively. At a few pounds under 15 stone and 6ft tall, Williams made 11 tackles and missed none. This against Samu Kerevi and Tevita Kuridrani who are not exactly known for their subtlety of play.Playmaker: Owen Williams gave Wales myriad options in midfieldWhilst many were looking for Owen Williams to throw ‘miss-three’ passes, the more pressing concern was whether he could defend at Test level – the answer was yes. A resounding yes which contributed to a 98% defensive completion for Wales as a whole – the highest that I have ever seen in any test Welsh test match. Whether Williams can keep the 12 shirt long term remains to be seen, especially with Owen Watkin (the latest addition to my rugby man crush list) warming up backstage, but what is no longer in question is that Wales need more ‘ballers’ and less ‘maulers’ in the centre. Wales lost a thirteenth consecutive time to the Wallabies but the way they played gave hope that a change of style was finally up and running Runaway: Gareth Davies makes a break but Wales weren’t able to catch the Wallabies Play Liam Williams at fullback so that I can stop having to write this pointWales’ change in style was desperately needed and, despite the loss, was effective. But one more change is required – Liam Williams must start at 15. Whilst Warren Gatland has been clear that he misled the rugby public a season ago by suggesting that they changed style, but didn’t, he did in reality make a big change during the tour to New Zealand – Williams being moved to 15. No player embodies the required change in style than the now Saracens man. Fullback is no longer a defensive orientated position.Natural born thriller: Liam Williams epitomises Wales’ new buccaneering styleYou need only look at how New Zealand utilise Ben Smith/ Damien McKenzie/ Israel Dagg or the Wallabies’ use of Israel Folau/ Kurtley Beale to realise that tackling is no longer the primary role of a 15. Counter attacking possession is now the gold, frankincense and myrrh of test rugby. The opportunity to run at dog-legged and jumbled defences is no more numerous than from 15. It is perhaps a very Welsh trait to be so reluctant to switch fullbacks and wings. The All Blacks have regularly played switched Dagg and Smith. As with much of what New Zealand do, Wales need to follow. Moments of brilliance can still win gamesKurtley Beale’s ‘rip and strip’ changed the game. Whilst it was bad news for Wales, it was good for rugby. For too long the game has relied on attrition and 25 phase sets to deliver tries. Seeing a player create a moment of solo magic was fantastic.That man again: Kurtley Beale broke Welsh hearts in 2012 as wellIt even caught the camera operator off-guard, which is a sign of genuine on-field brilliance – there’s nothing quite like seeing the person behind the lens fall for a dummy or midfield scissors. It was no more than Beale deserved. Many felt that he should have started at 12, but even at 15 his impact on the game was enormous. It was a pleasure to watch him play. Hat-tip Mr Beale.
Champ: Lam was a Challenge Cup winner with Wigan in 2002 (Getty Images)Additionally, it has been announced that former Wigan half-back Adrian Lam will be the interim coach during the 2019 season because of the departure of Shaun Wane. Lam, like Edwards, had success with the club winning the 2002 Challenge Cup with the side.Ian Lenagan said; “We’re extremely fortunate to have a man of Adrian’s calibre to come into the Head Coach role on an interim basis for the 2019 season.

We’re looking forward to how he builds on the very strong foundations that we have in place at Wigan.

It was also the third red card issued to a Scot against Wales in the Six Nations after Scott Murray (2006) and Stuart Hogg (2014). Both those cards happened in Cardiff.Wyn Jones crossed soon after Fagerson’s dismissal for a try that put Wales ahead 20-17, only for 14-man Scotland to strike back when captain Hogg got over for his second try.Scotland led a thrilling encounter 24-20 with ten minutes left but were undone by a superb finish from Man of the Match Louis Rees-Zammit.Ultimately Wales edged a thrilling contest 25-24 to go two from two in the tournament – read about how Rees-Zammit stunned the Scots. Zander Fagerson receives his marching orders during the action-packed Scotland-Wales game today Zander Fagerson sent off against WalesScotland tighthead Zander Fagerson was sent off in the 53rd minute of today’s Six Nations match against Wales at Murrayfield.The incident is on the match highlights package tweeted by the Guinness Six Nations account – you’ll find it below at about 2:05 into the footage. The Glasgow prop made contact to the head of opposite number Wyn Jones at a ruck. Referee Matt Carley, in consultation with TMO Karl Dickson, decided Fagerson had run in from distance, with a clear line of sight, and made contact to Jones’s head with his shoulder.Carley ruled that there were no mitigating factors that might have allowed Fagerson to escape with a yellow card. If anything, the late movement of Jones’s head helped Fagerson by reducing the impact of the contact.The red card was the second of the championship following Irishman Peter O’Mahony’s similar offence against Wales last weekend.

Organisation Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV News News Elections will be held in Ukraine on 31 March after four years of grave deterioration in press freedom. Despite government promises after pressure from the Council of Europe, there have been more and more physical attacks on journalists since the last elections in 1998, including 11 murders. That violence has increased in the run-up to the new vote. On 24 March, the driver of a car distributing copies of the newspaper Svoboda was physically attacked and most of the paper’s print-run destroyed. On 27 March, more than 100,000 copies of the newspaper 21st Century, in Lugansk, were seized. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) correspondents in the country report that 11 journalists have been killed in mysterious circumstances since 1998 and 48 others seriously injured in brutal attacks. This included one killed and nine injured in 1998, three killed and seven injured in 1999 and four killed and seven injured in 2000. Last year the toll was two killed and 18 injured. So far this year, one journalist has been killed in a mystery road accident and seven physically attacked. Most of the journalists were attacked in similar ways – in the stairway of their apartment buildings and hit over the head. Most were working too on stories about corruption involving the secret police militia, the state prosecutor’s office or local and national political and economic institutions, though some attacks were not clearly linked to journalism. Most of the attackers have not been identified and arrests that were made (of tramps and drug addicts) cast doubt on the seriousness of the investigation. The most notorious cases, of Georgy Gongadze, who was killed in 2000, and Igor Alexandrov (murdered last year), police and prosecutors openly obstructed the investigations, which never involved the interior ministry’s militia (the SBU secret police), who were suspected in many of the cases. Such conditions guarantee impunity for the killers and attackers of journalists and is the main threat to freedom of expression in Ukraine.
