It was a very emotional Rio Dyer who appeared to shed a tear as he experienced a stunning Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau for the first time as a full Wales international.

The 22-year-old Dragons winger was making his debut for Wayne Pivac’s men in the first match of the Autumn International series – and what a first game, against the mighty All Blacks.

Dyer had impressed hugely for the Dragons in some hugely impressive showings in the URC and fully deserved his chance.

And what a start he made scoring Wales’ first try in the 25th minute arrowing across the line much to his and the stadium’s delight.

Ultimately, it wasn’t to be Wales’ day, but it will be one that a young Welshman will never forget.
