Wales look to beat New Zealand after 'embarrassing' Fiji result
Date Posted: 26/11/10
Wales are looking to bounce back from a poor performance against Fiji last weekend when they take on New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
Warren Gatland's side could only manage a 16-16 draw against the Fijians, and now face the All Blacks, who have swept all beside them during the winter internationals.
It is also the final game Wales will play before taking on England in the Six Nations on Friday February 4th, a fixture which is sure to see people seeking out Cardiff hotels.
Looking ahead to the New Zealand game, Gatland said: "We were all disappointed last week when we made a number of changes which we thought we could cope with. We found out we couldn't, but we hope to be back firing on all cylinders this week."
Matthew Rees will lead Wales out at the Millennium Stadium this weekend, having replaced former skipper Ryan Jones following the poor display against Fiji.
