  • Wales 19 Samoa 26.

  • Samoa take the lineout through the excellent Tuifua, and the ball goes dead. Samoa win! What a result for the Islanders! Wales sinking to their fifth consecutive defeat and the pressure is on Rob Howley now. Thank you for joining us.

  • Jamie Roberts wins the restart and Wales throw everything forward. Turnover again though by Samoa and the clock will wind down.

  • TRY, SAMOA, LEOTA! 19-26. Such an important moment. Kick through from Lemi, Halfpenny fails to touch it down and Leota comes through to dot the ball down before it goes dead. Huge moment.

  • Priestland clears to touch but it doesn't go far, Samoa with possession deep in the Welsh half. Loose lineout but Ken Owens knocks on and Samoa have the scrum. Johnny Leota back on for Paul Williams. Once more it's a penalty to Samoa. Pisi struggling with cramp and misses the penalty.

  • Another penalty to Samoa at the scrum but Fotuali'i breaks, the Samoans up to the Welsh 22 but Lemi is bundled into touch.

  • Phillips attempts the grubber but hands possession back to Samoa, who drive forward. Phillips redeems himself and turns the ball over, Wales attacking down the left. Faletau knocks on though, scrum to Samoa with time ticking down.

  • Pisi misses touch from the penalty and Perez does brilliantly to regather possession from the returned kick. Another fine nudge from Pisi pins Wales back. Ryan Jones replaced by Sam Warburton.

  • Paul Williams returns for Samoa, back on for Johnny Leota. Treviranus also replaced by Fomai. Another big Samoan scrum and they win the penalty.

  • Perez botches the restart, but just about clears. Only as far as the 5 metre line and it's a Welsh lineout. Tipuric at the back of the maul which goes to ground. Tough defence from Samoa. Great turnover by Samoa and they clear, Halfpenny wrapped up. Scrum to Samoa.

  • PENALTY, SAMOA, PISI! 19-21. Another fine scrum from Samoa, Gethin Jenkins going down and Pisi hits it over from right in front.

  • Gethin Jenkins on for Wales. Knock on from the restart and Samoa have possession in Welsh territory. Thundering tackle from Jamie Roberts on Tusi Pisi, Samoa still with the ball though. Lovely hands from Autagavala and Pisi once more. Scrum to Samoa.

  • PENALTY, WALES, HALFPENNY! 19-18. Scrappy lineout but Wayne Barnes spots something on the far side. Chants of 'off' from the crowd after Fa'asavalu has his arm around Ken Owens neck. Penalty to Wales and Halfpenny makes no mistake.

  • Great turnover from Paulo but Tipuric does the same straight back. Smart kick from Wales and the ball goes out near the Samoan try line.

  • Samoa penalised straight from the restart and Halfpenny has the chance to take back the lead. Incredibly, given his quality, he misses it to the right. Let off for the visitors.

  • Ti'i Paulo of Clermont on for Avei.

  • PENALTY, SAMOA, PISI! 16-18. Straight up the middle from Samoa and a penalty against Aaron Jarvis. Fotuali'i with a drop goal attempt which sails wide, but they have the penalty. Pisi with the points.

  • Paul Williams taken off after that collision, replaced by Sale's Johnny Leota.

  • Good tackle from Jamie Roberts and Paul Williams knocks on. Priestland with an overlap to his left, but he opts to kick and the ball goes dead. Samoa scrum.

  • Welsh lineout 40 metres out, wide to Halfpenny who is wrapped up by Lemi. Phases later the ball comes loose and Samoa attack from deep, Perez struggling under pressure. Penalty Samoa, Ryan Jones not releasing the tackler.
