For all the heroic huffing and puffing dispensed by the captain, Cardiff might easily have prevailed. They had the scrummagers, they had the possession, they had the territory and, in Rhys Williams, they had at their disposal the most natural attacking talent to surface in Wales - or anywhere else in Britain for that matter - for aeons.

He looks very much like the teenager he is; fresh-faced, spindly-legged and worryingly slight of build, he is not so much a cog as a sprog in the Cardiff machine. But my, how the boy can run. It is far Carton Cigarettes too soon to label him the Christian Cullen of Wales, but what the hell. He's the Christian Cullen of Wales.

One blast of the turbocharger earned him the first of his side's two tries after 34 minutes of rough and tumble, and he would have claimed a second just after the interval had Cull not ended a 60-metre rampage with the most desperate of straw-clutching cover tackles.

Had Williams come off his left foot at the crucial moment, he would have been in under the posts for sure. But, in fairness, the sidestep is not the easiest of manoeuvres when you are running like a biriani-propelled Maurice Greene.

"He's quite a Cigarettes Wholesale prospect, young Rhys," agreed Lyn Howells, the Cardiff coach. "Apart from anything else, he hung on to the ball out there. I wish everyone else had." Howells was justified in his criticism after watching his side concede 16 turnovers, but it is the forthcoming turnover of staff that will encourage him.

From Rob Howley to Craig Quinnell, Cardiff had a dozen World Cup men missing on Saturday. When the showpiece tournament is done and dusted and everyone is back on Arms Park duty, they will take an awful lot of beating.

Hmmm, maybe you have some kind of ad blocker included? Look carefully at your browser. Maybe you have an extension installed, something like If so, try turning it off temporarily. In any case, I see no other reason.
