Graham Price: Wales raised their bar but All Blacks’ quality still too good

To beat the All Blacks you have to be right on the top of your game mentally and physically, so it was no surprise Wales lost as they did last night.Mentally, they were on the back foot after those defeats to Argentina and Samoa, and physically they were put on their backs early on – with the injuries to second row Bradley Davies and tight-head prop Aaron Jarvis.Davies was short-armed by hooker Andrew Hore, who can expect to be up before a disciplinary committee this week, and was carted off to hospital with concussion, while Jarvis was stretchered off with a knee injury.
