Rhys Patchell marked coming off the bench for Wales the weekend by scoring his first try for the national team – and what a try it was.
The playmaker scored a brilliant individual effort in the second-half as Wales absolutely trounced Tonga 74-24 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff to make it three from three this November.
Yes the Tonga defence was somewhat disintegrating at this point, but a timely reminder of the threat posed by Rhys Patchell on Saturday. If he can stay fit and in-form through December there's a massive decision for Gatland to make come February. pic.twitter.com/VtWm0JuQH1

But his celebrations didn’t work out quite as well, as the outhalf can be seen apologising profusely just seconds after dotting the ball down. Turns out he had walloped an unsuspecting steward with the during his wild celebrations.
The look on his face says it all! Fair play to him for being so apologetic.
RETURN OF THE PATCH @rhys_patch scores a wonderful try on his international return (and celebrates a bit too enthusiastically). #WALvTON pic.twitter.com/xHWghrxSPu
