For War­ren Gat­land as he sur­veys the ca­su­alty list that has seen an al­ready in­jury-rav­aged squad brought to a point where it is al­most im­pos­si­ble to see how they can con­tinue to cope. “We’ve run out of play­ers at the mo­ment … but this was about courage,” he said af­ter Satur­day’s game.

It will take more than that to get them through, but if any­one can find a way it is Gat­land. Mean­time, he seems fully vin­di­cated in his dis­missal of the tripe about Wales’ breach of the “spirit of the rules” by bring­ing in play­ers not yet in their of­fi­cial squad to train with them.
