‘Wales will not hold back’ – Moriarty

Date published: May 31 2016

Wales flanker Ross Moriarty said that his team will not be intimidated at the task of taking on the All Blacks in their own back yard when the two nations face off in a three match Test series with the first clash scheduled for Eden Park on June 11.

Wales have a dismal record against New Zealand having gone 63 years without recording a victory against the number one team in the world and not many will be giving them a chance of rewriting history after they went down 27-13 to an under-strength England side at Twickenham on Sunday.

Moriarty told the WRU website that his team are looking forward to the challenge that awaits them and they will do some video analysis and identify the errors which cost them against England.

"We'll review England, learn from our mistakes and work on things,” said Moriarty.

“New Zealand will be the toughest of opposition and it will be a good test for us. They are two time world champions in a row, they are the best team in the world so it's going to be a huge test for us down there.”

Moriarty added that his team will give their all and at the end of the day it is a game of 15 players up against 15.

"We're not going to hold back, we'll go out there and see what happens," he added.

"We go there full of excitement, everyone wants to play the best team in the world and there is no bigger test than taking on New Zealand in their own backyard."
