Tip Wales - Japan
Wales beat Argentina last week but have made ten changes from that team for this game against Japan. Their opponents had a win over Georgia last week but this is a considerably harder task for them. The Welsh win over Argentina was a much better performance from when they lost to Australia. Japan had success at the World Cup last year but this is a much changed team now. Only once in nine games have Japan beaten Wales and they have scored 71 tries in those nine matches. Japan have come on a great deal since a 98-0 loss to Wales in 2004 Wales can get the win here, go for a -21.5 handicap.
