Wales created chances, but couldn't finish, says Gatland

Warren Gatland says there were times when Wales played 'some pretty good rugby' against the Wallabies.

Asked about injuries to Liam Williams and Jamie Roberts, Gatland said both sides were battered and bruised by the encounter. Roberts was taken off by physios and was being assessed and Gatland said they weren't sure whether Williams had re-injured his foot - an issue which left him out of the warm-up games.

He says Wales created chances, but couldn't finish against Australia, which was something they'd look at ahead of next week's South Africa quarter-final.

Warburton says it's disappointing to lose but has no regrets

Sam Warburton says he has no regrets after Wales lost to Australia and praised the Wallabies' defence.

The Wales captain said it was disappointing they didn't score against Australia when they were down to 13 men, but at the same time they didn't concede any tries against one of the best teams in the world.

He said it's an 'absolute privilege' to be playing against the top teams and Wales are looking forward to South Africa.


Bale named in Wales team to face Bosnia-Herzegovina

Wales have named their starting line-up for tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier in Bosnia-Herzegovina, with star forward Gareth Bale included after recovering from a calf injury.

Roma forward Edin Dzeko is only on the bench for the hosts in Zenica.

A draw or a victory tonight would see Chris Coleman's side qualify for their first major tournament finals since 1958.

Wales fought hard in the second half against a weakened Australian side, but couldn't quite make it count.

The Wallabies went down to 14 men after scrum-half Will Genia was sin-binned for a tackle on counter-part Gareth Davies. Minutes later Taulupe Faletau narrowly missed out on getting the first try of the game, but it was ruled out by the TMO.

Dean Mumm joined Genia in the sin-bin for repeat infringements at the lineout putting the Wallabies down to 13 men. George North tried to capitalise on the advantage, but his effort was held up.

The game ended early for both Liam Williams and Alex Cuthbert - Williams limping off for the third time in the tournament and Cuthbert sin-binned.

Despite their efforts, Wales couldn't overcome the Australian defence and the game ended Australia 15-6 Wales.

It's been a penalty-filled first half for Australia v Wales, with the Wallabies leading at half time.

Dan Biggar opened the scoring, before trading penalties with Australia's Bernard Foley. Biggar missed his first penalty of the tournament and the chance to draw even in the closing minutes of the half. Matt Giteau missed a kick just before the whistle leaving it Australia 9-6 Wales at half time.
