• A ninth successive win is their best run for 19 years
We have another contender on these isles. Ireland may be blazing the trail at the moment and England recovering from their wobbles of last season but Wales are as dangerous as any. Warren Gatland thinks his team are still under the radar. If people are missing them, they are not paying attention. This is their first clean sweep of an autumn series and their ninth win in a row.
With this victory, their most impressive of the month, they consolidate their position at number three in the world rankings. That achievement may not come with a gong, but what confidence they seem to be developing, just as Gatland’s long reign reaches its denouement, just as World Cup year heaves into view.
