  1. And so on to Wellington

    FT: Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    Well, that probably wasn't worth getting out of bed for - unless you're an ex-pat Kiwi longing for the Waikato.

    Just to recap then, Wales conceded six tries and managed just the one themselves from a driving line-out. And Jake Ball limped off with an injury five days before the second Test against the All Blacks.

    There will be wholesale changes for that game. But on this evidence the players knocking on the door for selection are not knocking very hard.

    If you're feeling brave or are an eternal optimist, set your alarm early on Saturday for our live coverage of the action from Wellington.

    We'll be here, and you're all welcome.

  3. Where does this rank among Wales' bad days?

    FT: Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    Apart from losing 71-8 to New South Wales in 1991, Wales also lost 63-6 to Queensland.

    And in 1995, third-tier South African team South Eastern Transvaal beat Alex Evans' men 47-6

  5. We were dominated - Gatland

    Reaction: Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    Wales coach Warren Gatland: "We were dominated at collision time and that was the difference between the teams. They were better in defence and attack.

    "It probably answered a few questions in terms of those who have been knocking on our door wanting to play Test rugby.

    "It was disappointing."

  6. Wales glum as they are hammered in Hamilton

    Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    A penny for Rhys Priestland's thoughts as Wales outclassed by the clinical Chiefs in Hamilton as the Super Rugby side ease to a six-try victory

  8. Captain's woes

    FT: Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    Wales captain Luke Charteris: "We let ourselves down there. We didn't match them in the tackle, we didn't match them with our line speed and that's a credit to them.

    "They gave us a lesson and it's a tough lesson to take. But we knew what was coming and that was not acceptable."

  10. A tough night out

    FT: Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    Well, that was a humbling experience for Warren Gatland and his team.

    Completely out-gunned at the breakdown and ruthlessly exposed when Chiefs saw the goal-line, Wales were given a harsh-lesson in Hamilton.

    And life doesn't get any easier. Five days from now they face the All Blacks in Wellington.

  11. FULL-TIME: Warren woe as Gatland's Wales lose at "home"

    Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    It's an unhappy return 'home' to Hamilton for Warren Gatland and the Wales coach isn't looking happy...

    Brad Weber, Tom Sanders, Dom Bird, James Lowe, Toni Pulu and Sam McNichol score for a Chiefs side weakened by the absence of eight internationals.

    Hooker Kristian Dacey scores his first try in Wales colours but few Welshmen will remember this game

  13. How embarrassing is this?

    Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    Well it could be worse. In 1991, David Campese ran in five tries as New South Wales hammered Ron Waldron's Wales team 71-8 in Australia.

  14. TRY McNicol (conv. Lowe)

    Chiefs 40-7 Wales

    And the kicking game pays off again. Sam McNicol is quicker to the ball than Tom James and sprints in unopposed from 35 metres.

    James Lowe is on target from in front of the posts.

    Chiefs 33-7 Wales

    We agree, Martyn. It's been a less than stellar performance.

    What do you reckon? What could Wales have done differently? What's your postmortem on today's game?

  16. TRY Pulu (Lowe missed conv.)

    Chiefs 33-7 Wales

    A fabulous conter-attack exposes Wales on their left flank as wing Toni Pulu follows up a clever kick-ahead and shows some sweet ball control himself to claim try number five for the home team.

    James Lowe misses the conversion.

  17. What a tackle

    Chiefs 28-7 Wales

    Slick passing releases Eli Walker on the right, but he is cut down by Sam McNicol's outstanding covering tackle. 

    Top quality defence.

  18. Wales are in deep, deep trouble

    Chiefs 28-7 Wales

    Owen Rawlings

    BBC Wales Sport in Hamilton, New Zealand

    Has that try finished Wales off? 

    The Chiefs have been so clinical, while Wales' play has been a catalogue of errors.

    Wales are pushing and probing, but all the replacements are disrupting the flow of the game and the Chiefs are easing to victory here in Hamilton.

  19. TRY Lowe (conv. Donald)

    Chiefs 28-7 Wales

    Wales spent 20 minutes in the Chiefs half for their try. 

    Chiefs make their first foray into the Wales half after the break and full-back James Lowe takes a scoring pass from Taleni Seu to claim his side's fourth try.

    Stephen Donald converts with his last contribution of the game and receives a well-deserved standing ovation as he departs.

  20. Momentum swing

    Chiefs 21-7 Wales

    The second half was all Wales until now.
