Surely the Wallabies' experiment with Kurtley Beale at No. Meanwhile, Mario Ledesma is in the same sweet spot Michael Cheika occupied in As the Wallabies slip to a demoralising seventh in the world rankings, the need for a change in direction has never been clearer. These lost Wallabies souls need revitalising, the time to act is now -- Greg Growden writes. Argentina coach Mario Ledesma is certain his former boss Michael Cheika is the right man to steer the Wallabies forward, insisting his methods will soon bear fruit.
Talk is cheap and Wallabies coach Michael Cheika knows the only way to placate an increasingly agitated Australian rugby fanbase, after letting them down once again, is through actions on the field. Wallabies coach Michael Cheika doesn't expect Lukhan Tui will join the team for their Rugby Championship tour after indicating his desire to sit out the remainder of the season.
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika admits Israel Folau squandered an easy chance to seal victory over Argentina in their Rugby Championship clash. How do the Wallabies pick up the pieces? I thought we defended superbly.
Scotland had a lot of attacking threats. We had to cope with that. Apart from the soft try, I thought our defence was outstanding. Getting the bonus point was pretty pleasing. My colleague Simon Thomas disagrees with me but Barclay is getting no change out of the Pascal Gauzere here.
Entertaining to watch they did get themselves in a spot of bother at one stage. Two brilliant, early scores got everyone going but the pace of the game caught up with the players towards the end of the half. Wales win the scrum and Parkes boots a brilliant touch-finder into the Scotland The maul goes nowhere so they go wide, McGuigan takes the ball in but Navidi is over it in a flash.

Key Events Gatland on injuries Warren Gatland's post-match interview Gatland on injuries Liam Williams will take a full part in training on Monday, so those two will come in. Gatland on Wales' strength in depth We never spoke about the injuries and players being unavailable. Gatland on England I thought the draw was a great draw for us.
Jones on a good result Everyone wants to start with a win. The talking points Had five minutes to get your head around that one?
A cracking performance and a great win. Stay tuned for live updates from the post-match press conference. They keep it tight and maul it. Scotland go across the field with one-out runners. Wales are holding firm on their own five metre line.
But Peter Horne picks up from the base of a ruck and speeds over. Gauzere just wants to check to see if Horne was onside when he played the ball. Not this time, the try is good and Russell converts. Shingler holds off two defenders and throws the softest of offloads to Navidi. He dives over and finishes brilliantly with one hand. Anscombe sends Alun Wyn Jones charging through a gap. As Hogg comes in to make the tackle, Anscombe gets on his shoulder and the pass is perfect. Scotland defend it well, to be fair.
Barclay gets in over the ball and finally gets a penalty. Russell boots it to touch around halfway but Scotland lose the lineout. Some lovely play from Wales out wide.
Anscombe involved, he links up with Navidi. The replacement fly-half throws a nice offload to Wyn Jones. He does well to gather and bundle his way over the line. Penalty to Wales around halfway for playing the ball on the floor. Anscombe, on for Patchell, boots it down to the Scotland They take it right down to around two metres out before being dragged down.
It comes back and Moriarty is hit hard. The target for us is for us to get our wingers 15 to 20 touches. Gatland looks ahead to the next few weeks We need to look at how we improve in that area. More from Sam Warburton They were good at slowing the ball down.
We knew that was going to be their game plan coming in with two openside flankers. Warburton then expands on why he went for the try in the second half You just have to have a feel for those things.
We worked quite hard to get some territory. The scrum was going pretty well. I thought the scrum was going well. I just had a feel for it. Toby is very dangerous off the base so I just thought the scrum was the best option.
I think you need guys in big moments. I thought defensively he was excellent, leading that defence. It was a proper test match. Looking ahead to France When someone new comes in it does take a few games to try and get that under your belt. I saw some stats and they had second half territory and dominance over Ireland. But having that two week preparation is hopefully going to hold us in good stead. Warren Gatland on the Wales scrum The scrum has been good. Both of the props are still learning to play at this level.
The way we are scrummaging at the moment is really pleasing. I thought our line-out was really excellent and the bench did a great job for us. Sam Warburton on George North Sam Warburton has his say on George North following his superb try At any moment in time they can produce something special.
They deserve to have plenty of plaudits. Gatland post match reaction It was a tough game, we had to dig deep and we had to grind out a victory. The six day turnaround was tough. Both teams went really hard at each other, Scotland made the breakdown tough for us. Our lineout and maul defence was good. Maybe the difference was we had a couple of chances and we took those chances.
You saw something special from George North and sometimes you need that in games. I felt like we got stronger as the game went on. Gatland's press conference about to start! Stay with us for all the thoughts of Warren Gatland We can focus on the next one.
