As Wayne Pivac’s threadbare side dare to dream against New Zealand on Saturday, Wales skipper Alun Wyn Jones has reminded his players that “the hoodoo and the record has had to go at some point.”
A Welsh side hasn’t beaten the All Blacks in 68 years, and Jones and his team’s chances of breaking that streak at the Principality Stadium are bleak. On a Wales victory, bookmakers are offering odds of 14-1.
Due to a mixture of unavailability, injury, and Covid-19, Pivac is down to 20 players. New Zealand has a full complement of players.
Jones said: “The hoodoo and the record has got to go at some point. Dare I say it, who is the pressure on? Is it us? Is it New Zealand? I don’t know.
