Cape Town - Wales coach Warren Gatland has revealed his players celebrated their 22-20 victory over South Africa in Washington DC on Saturday night with Hadleigh Parkes' stag do.

According to the Wales Online website, the squad are only due to travel to Buenos Aires on Sunday night, which left them plenty of time to have a night off and 'enjoy each other's company' in the words of Gatland.

Details remain, understandably, sketchy, but it seems the tradition of having a few beers on tour is still going strong.

"The boys are going to have a good night, Hadleigh Parkes’ stag do tonight," said Gatland in the post-Test press conference.

"I think we need enjoy each other's company so it’s a nice excuse to go and celebrate too."

When pressed for more details, Gatland remained tight-lipped, adding: "Hadleigh will probably get dressed up I suppose. We’ll see what happens later on."

The centre came off the bench around the half hour mark for Scarlets team-mate Steff Evans, who left the RFK Stadium on crutches after hyperextending his knee.

Wales are due to play Argentina in two Tests on June 9 and 16.
