Jenkins wants Wales to front-up against Boks

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Cardiff: Wales kick­ing coach Neil Jenkins has chal­lenged his team to meet the Spring­boks head-on when the teams meet in Cardiff this week­end.

A third suc­ces­sive vic­tory for Rob Howley’s charges would equal their best-ever end-of year cam­paign. But they face a wounded South Africa side who were beaten by Italy for the first time last week­end. Wales ground-out a 12-6 vic­tory over the Spring­boks the last time they met in Cardiff back in 2014, and the vis­i­tors will be with­out their in­flu­en­tial lock Eben Etze­beth. And Jenkins has urged Wales to front-up. “South Africa play an in­tim­i­dat­ing and phys­i­cal brand of rugby,” he said. Planet Rugby
