Wales manager Rob Page: “I’m so proud. I was emotional at the end in the circle, I couldn’t be prouder of that group of men. To give that performance after Saturday’s performance… We went out for the win tonight; we weren’t happily sitting and holding onto a point. Credit has got to got go to those players; they were outstanding. With the crowd like it was tonight and on Saturday, we fancy our chances against anybody [in the play-offs]. The draw for these matches will take place on November 26. Scotland already knows they will be seeded, meaning a home semi-final. Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Sweden are among the other teams heading to the play-offs.”
