Jamie Roberts has described Wales heaviest home defeat for 10 years as a kick in the backside. .Australias 32-8 Principality Stadium triumph -- the Wallabies were in cruise control for most of a hopelessly one-sided contest -- left Wales clutching at straws for any positive elements.But the recovery act has to begin rapidly, with Australias Rugby Championship rivals Argentina in Cardiff next Saturday, followed by appointments with Japan and South Africa.Wales have won just three of their last 12 Tests, while they remain without a victory in the opening game of an autumn campaign since they beat Romania in Wrexham 14 years ago.Australia could, and should, have won by a greater margin, and not since New Zealand inflicted a 45-10 drubbing on them in 2006 had Wales been so horribly outclassed on home soil.It cannot be ignored that Wales went into battle without five front-line players -- Sam Warburton, Alun Wyn Jones, Taulupe Faletau, Jonathan Davies and Liam Williams -- while scrum-half Rhys Webb now appears a fitness doubt for the remaining three November games after suffering an ankle injury.But the absentees could not remotely paper over damaging cracks in a Wales performance scarred by ineffective forwards, poor defending and frequently being left bewildered by Australias all-singing, all-dancing attacking game that delivered tries for Stephen Moore, Reece Hodge, Tevita Kuridrani, Bernard Foley and Dane Haylett-Petty.We have to look at the video and be honest and up front on Monday, Wales centre Roberts said.We just got beaten on the gain-line, and that is rugby, ultimately.In the first-half, as the game was going on, we just couldnt slow their speed of ball. Their ruck speed was very quick, so in defence we just couldnt get off the line and we made some poor reads, myself included.Rugby is about momentum, its about speed of ball, and we just didnt win that battle against Australia. They played some good stuff in attack and caused us problems, along with some poor defensive reads from us.Argentina will pose a similar threat with a lot of pace out wide, and if we allow them momentum, speed of ball and space in the game, it will be another tough day.Its certainly a kick in the backside for us, and we go into training on Monday and we have to address the issues.Wales interim head coach Rob Howley looks certain to make changes for the Pumas encounter, with flanker Warburton and lock Jones likely to be back, and it must also be hoped that key backs Williams and Davies are available.Howley, meanwhile, could also look at possible starting spots for fly-half Sam Davies and lock Cory Hill, two Test rookies who settled comfortably and impressively when they made second-half appearances off the bench.Weve got to learn from it, Roberts added.Argentina are a formidable outfit this year, and they have improved a lot the last few years. We will rock up to training on Monday and learn from our mistakes and go again.Weve been there before. A lot of us have been there before. It was a bad day at the office for us, and it happens in rugby, it happens in sport.You would like to blame a lot of different things for a result like that, but there is no point being too complicated about it. They beat us.The speed of ball, and certainly with the possession in the first-half, they blew us away. You can dress it up all you want, but we lost the gain-line battle. . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1.Kings XI Punjab were left to rue errors in the field as their IPL troubles continued with a 25-run defeat to reigning champions Mumbai Indians in Mohali. Mitchell Johnsons no-ball stopped Kings XI having Parthiv Patel (81 from 58 balls) caught on 15, while Axar Patel dropped Ambati Rayudu (65 from 37) in the deep when the Mumbai batsman was on 33.Patel and Rayudu proceeded to biff 137 for the second wicket as the visitors amassed 189-6, with rock-bottom Kings XI slipping to a fifth loss in six games after being contained to 164-7, despite Glenn Maxwells 56 from 39 balls. Parthiv Patels 81 helped Mumbai beat Kings XI The hosts dismissed Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma (0) second ball but had to wait until the 15th over for their next breakthrough, Rayudu being pouched when looking to club a third six in succession off Patel. Rayudu cracked four boundaries and four maximums in his knock, while Patel creamed 10 fours and two sixes in his before holing out off the recalled Johnson (1-43) in the penultimate over.Englands Jos Buttler also smashed and scooped his way to 24 from 13 deliveries late on, the 25-year-old nailling three fours and a six, with Sandeep Sharma (1-20) the pick of the Kings XI attack. Mohit Sharma (3-38), who bowled Buttler with a cracking slower ball, snared Kieron Pollard (10) and Hardik Pandya (4) from the final two deliveries, though Mumbai grabbed back the momentum at the start of Kings XIs innings when Buttler caught Murali Vijay (19) and Manan Vohra (7). Glenn Maxwells enterprising 56 came in a losing effort Maxwells stand of 89 with fellow Australian Shaun Marsh (45 off 34) threatened to take Kings XI close but when Marsh flicked Tim Southee (2-28) to Rayudu at deep square at the end of the 15th and Maxwell chopped on facing Jasprit Bumrah (3-26) three overs later, the hosts hopes were extinguished.Mitchell McClenaghan (2-32), the leading wicket taker in the competition with 11, shattered the stumps twice towards the death, Johnsons day becoming even more frustrating when he was castled by the left-arm quick for one.Catch more IPL action on Tuesday afternoon as Eoin Morgan and Sunrisers Hyderabad host MS Dhonis Rising Pune Supergiants.
