Prydie brings down Kiwis

Wales yesterday inflicted New Zealand's first ever defeat at the IRB Under-20 World Championship, winning their Pool One match in Stellenbosch, South Africa, 9-6.

The Ospreys fly-half Matthew Morgan kicked one penalty for the Welsh and the Dragons wing Tom Prydie, who has won four senior caps, kicked two. Scott Eade kicked two penalties for New Zealand.

Wales lost 92-0 to New Zealand at last year's tournament, which was held in Italy. New Zealand, who beat Samoa 63-0 in their first match, had made 11 changes to their team to face Wales.
