Adams pays testament to Wales' character following dramatic second Test victory

International | 12th July 2022

Josh Adams paid testament to Wales’ character as they drew level with South Africa in the Test series following a dramatic win in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

With a matter of moments left on the clock, the Cardiff star - who started on the bench for the first time in his Wales career - crossed for the only try of the game, which was expertly converted out wide by former Blue and Black, Gareth Anscombe.

The British and Irish Lion was proud of how his side bounced back from defeat in the opening Test, as they now travel to Cape Town for the decider.

Adams said: “After last week, we spoke about the disappointment and hurt we had to lose the game right at the end.

“We knew that if we could bottle that hurt up as a team then we could use it effectively.

“The way we came back showed the character of the team. There was a bit of a slump at 12-6 down, but we came back and won it.

“It speaks volumes about this team.

“South Africa’s defence is renowned to be a very strong one, and rightly so. 

“It takes a lot of effort and time to break a defence like that down but the try at the end was taken excellently by the team.

“We went through the motions with the forwards, sucked them in and ended up scoring in the corner.

“As a squad we’re absolutely delighted, especially after last week.”
