CARDIFF: Samoa produced another memorable victory in Cardiff as Wales slumped to their fifth successive defeat, losing 26-19 to the south sea islanders in Friday's one-off Test match.

Fa'atoina Autagavaia, George Pisi and Johnny Leota all crossed as the Six Nations champions suffered a similar fate to their predecessors.

Memories of famous World Cup shocks from 1991 and 1999 came flooding back as the ferocious tackling and clinical finishing of the visitors rocked hosts Wales.
