Wales kicking coach Neil Jenkins on Wednesday called on the team to raise their game ahead of the second Test against South Africa at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday – and said that he believed the visitors could turn the tables on the Springboks.
News24 reports that the Six Nations champions will be looking to bounce back from a 43-17 drubbing.
Jenkins said there was a real determination among the Welsh players to give a better account of themselves in the rematch with the world champions.
“That motivation is massive and we’ve seen that in training already this week,” he said on the Wales website..
“After the amount of work these guys had done leading up to the game, not to put it into play was hugely disappointing. We were very focused, yet for whatever reason it just didn’t work out.
“But it’s a two-Test series and we go again Saturday. Stuff happens in sport.
“That’s the great thing about it, you get the opportunity to put it right a week later and we’ll certainly do our best to do that.
“If we can eradicate some of the issues that were wrong in Bloemfontein, then I think we’ll be in with a good shout.
“We dropped a lot of ball and maybe offloaded when we didn’t need to, but things like that can be sorted out and put right within a week. South Africa are a world-class outfit.”Tweet
