Phillips' side had began the campaign with a 19-5 win over South Africa.

Wales head coach Rowland Phillips told BBC Sport Wales: "I was really pleased with the result. We spoke before that we needed to start believing in ourselves and winning games that we're expected to win and winning them well.

"We did that tonight and certainly there's a lot of work still to do but this for us is another step forward.

"It was really pleasing to get our second win of the autumn."
