With the second Test coming up this weekend against New Zealand, Wales’s team is making certain changes.
For instance, Rhys Patchell and Luke Charteris are being brought in to replace North and Davies. The changes are being made by Warren Gatland in preparation to face the All Blacks team in Wellington. The defeat match that was played by the Welsh team on Tuesday saw Luke Charteris in action. Indeed, all the players had a humbling experience in the Tuesday’s match.
Two changes were made by Warren Gatland. He has made the decision for the changes to fortify his team as they prepare themselves to meet the All Blacks team in the second Test on Saturday in Wellington. Liam Williams, the full back player for the team, is being moved to the wing. He is considered one of the star players of the team. The first Test that was played in Auckland last weekend ended in a defeat for the team. Williams will be taking over the position of George North who is injured. Luke Charteris would be in the second row to replace Bradley Davies. The latter will be moving to the bench.
There has been several line outs lost at Eden Park. For that reason Gatland is getting Charteris back so that the problem can be solved. The match that was arranged by Gatland with the Chiefs resulted in a humiliating finish for the team. However, Gatland remains undeterred and he is pushing his players to keep their eyes on the ground and to play with confidence. He feels that the team is able to retain the ball. There were moments in the first test when the team played well. He feels that the same performance needs to be repeated in the second Test for the team to taste success.
