Selection headache for Howley

STAND-IN Wales coach Rob Howley says he is happy to have selection headaches going into the second Test in Melbourne on Saturday after his midweek team held off the Brumbies to win 25-15 in Canberra on Tuesday night.

Howley, in charge of the Welsh while Warren Gatland recovers from injuries received after falling from a ladder earlier in the year, rested most of his starting players for the Brumbies clash, lock Luke Charteris the only one to back up from the Wallabies clash.

Wales ran in three tries in the first half with James Hook, Justin Tiperic and captain Alun Wyn Jones all finding their way over the line.

"We always have (selection) headaches," Howley said. "We've got two packs that can go head-to-head and it's great to have those decisions to be made ... they'll be made over the next 48 hours
