WALES POOL 3
6th October 1991 - WALES 13 WESTERN SAMOA 16 (Cardiff)
The Western Samoan smash-and-grab raid at the Arms Park left Wales' World Cup hopes in tatters. It was hardly a case of Sunday best for the Welsh, who flopped to defeat and lost two forwards into the bargain.
The Samoans tackling was immense and they thoroughly deserved their victory. Wales felt the try by centre To'o Vaega should not have been allowed as Robert Jones clearly got the first touch - according to TV replays.
Scott Gibbs drooped a pass that would have let him in for a try and Mark Ring failed to shine in his new role at fly-half shortly after recovering from a knee operation.
Phil May dislocated his shoulder and Richie Collins wrenched his shoulder.
Neither played in the tournament again, while Tony Clement was bruised from head to toe in one spectacular tackle by Apollo Perelini and missed the next match.

9th October 1991 - WALES 16 ARGENTINA 7 (Cardiff)
Wales were desperate for victory after eight consecutive matches without a win at the Arms Park and were thankful the Pumas missed with six penalty shots.

12th October 1991 - WALES 3 AUSTRALIA 38
Wales had to beat the Wallabies to clinch a quarter-final place, but instead crashed to their biggest ever home defeat.
The eventual World Cup winners ran in six tries and dominated the line-out.
Between them Rod McCall and John Eales won 28 line-outs, while Wales could only come up with one in each half.
Wales' only points came from a Mark Ring penalty. Wales had only ever conceded six tries in a match at the Arms Park before, in an uncapped match against Fiji in 1964, and this defeat meant they had conceded 18 tries in two successive matches against the Wallabies without reply.
