Wales were left devastated by Kurtley Beale's late score
Warren Gatland admitted Wales and their coaching staff have been left gutted following their last minute defeat to Australia at the Millennium Stadium.
It was a close, tight, tough Test match and we should have won it. The last minute try is a bit disappointing.
The boot of Leigh Halfpenny saw Gatland's side lead 12-9 with just minutes remaining only for Kurtley Beale's late score to snatch victory for the Wallabies.
With nothing to lose, Australia attacked from inside their own half and when Beale found space, he outpaced the Welsh defence and the covering Alex Cuthbert to touch down. The score left the Millennium Stadium dumbfounded and the Welsh squad on their knees.
Here's what Wales head coach Gatland had to say in the immediate aftermath of the loss:
"We are pretty gutted. Apart from the last minute we played some outstanding rugby.
"It was a close, tight, tough Test match and we should have won it. It was a tough match and the last minute try is a bit disappointing.
"Even if we had won today we would have been very disappointed with letting one or two go this autumn.
"We played some really good rugby and we showed we are a good side but you need to be smarter at the death.
"It was obvious to us from the stands that they were going to move the ball in the last few minutes and we shouldn't have allowed them to get out of their 22. That is disappointing.
"There is not much difference between the two teams. They are a tough team to beat but I didn't think they played a lot of rugby.
"Leigh Halfpenny has gone straight to hospital, we don't know the situation yet."
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
