Many would argue, that there’s nothing more beautiful than a last minute drop-goal attempt which ultimately could win, lose or draw a game. Well, that’s just happened in the international rugby game between Wales and Japan.
The Welsh are at a low ebb at present, but going down to Japan at home would be unthinkable. In front of a packed Principality Stadium, Rob Howley’s side were forced to fight all the way to the end by the Brave Blossoms.
In the 79th minute, the teams were tied. It was 30 points apiece.
It was an end to end game. Even up until the last minute many still felt something was coming. The game was destined to be won or lost. It was sloppy, yet entertaining to the last second.
The game was set up for a winner, for a hero, and then a hero stepped up. The Ospreys player, Sam Davies, was called for duty, and he slotted over a magnificent pressure kick in the final moments to clinch the victory against the Japanese side.
