Alun Wyn Jones has jumped to the defence of Wayne Pivac – claiming the under fire Wales coach has steered Wales towards a "watershed moment" despite poor results.

Rugby Isn't Boring . . . But Watching Lots Of It On TV - That'll Make You Very Dull, Indeed

The debates have raged on during the Autumn Nations Cup. For some, the game has become a snore-fest of kicking, pile-ups, penalties and shapeless set-pieces. For others, these moaners just don’t get the modern game. For Harri Morgan, it all depends on where you sit – and how long you’ve been watching.
